Community goes abuzz following eviction


The community of Mamaolo Ga-Mphahlele took to the streets on Friday, 13 March 2020 to hand in a memorandum to the Mayor of the Lepelle Nkumpi Municipality. This comes after the Municipality had evicted them on the Middlekop(Mamaolo), the land that is prominently known as Bramley.

According to the Municipality the land being spoken of is that of Lebowakgomo Unit J.  Ntona Phauwe Chuene claimed otherwise, “That land belongs to us, our ancestors are buried there. The Mphahlele Traditional Royal has no say in allocating residential sites, each Ntona is allocated a site to allocate to the community.” 

Chuene claims the Municipality gave them an interdict on the land, and at the first court appearance the case was dismissed with costs over the Municipality. The case then went further, wherein the Municipality interdicted again but this time around Chuene claims they were issued with a summon of the land adjacent to Middlekop which is called Voorspot Rusplaas(Boomplaas), he says they didn’t show up on the dates summoned to court as according to them that wasn’t served in the right location.

In a verdict the court ruled in favour of Lepelle Nkumpi Municipality and Ntona Phauwe Chuene is expected to pay the costs.

In the memorandum handed over to the Interim Mayor Cllr Mphahlele with all the grievances, they are expected to respond to them in 30days.
