Lepelle Nkumpi Local Municipality demolish structure on illegal occupied municipal land on the remainder of farm Voorspoed



In an effort to implement court orders against illegal land occupation, Lepelle Nkumpi Local Municipality (LNM) have demolished about 100 illegal structures on remainder of Farm Voorspoed 458KS in Lebowakgomo on the 10th of  December.

The municipality has already sold 110 sites on the land, wherein title deeds were issued to the rightful owners.

LNM continued with the demolition process as it has obtained several court orders.

The enforcement of the court orders, some dating as back as 2017, is part of the municipal’s effort to intensify compliance.

The relief sought in this particular matter relating to Voorspoed was to restrain any individuals from occupying the remaining land.

Acting Judge Tshibada delivered judgement on the matter wherein any unlawful invaders and the Minister of Police were first and second responded respectively.

Terms of the order include restraining from clearing natural vegetation, demarcation of the property into individual stands, and the erection of any structure at the property, fencing poles, dwelling units, or any other structure of a permanent or non-permanent nature.

The acting judge further ordered to restrain any other form of occupation of the property, be it permanent or non-permanent nature.

The sheriff of the region was further authorised to enforce the terms of the order through removal by any lawful means within the sheriff’s conferred powers, any individual that may be found conducting themselves in contravention of the terms of the order.

LNM mayor councillor Meriam Molala said the municipality has dealt with illegal occupation of several pockets of land earmarked for development in the past.

“The court order is a welcome relief in effort aimed at developing land for its indented purpose. Our by laws are there for a reason, and we all need to adhere to them in order to contribute to the progression of municipality, its economy and its people,” said Molala

She said for many years the rule of law has been ignored and no consideration given to the effects illegal land occupation has on the lives of peopleSet featured image
