An eviction order has been made final against Khoi activists who occupied District Six flats in Cape Town meant for those on a waiting list.
The group occupied 11 units in the suburb last month which were earmarked for land restitution returnees, claiming that their ancestral land as aborigines had been taken away.
All but one family with small children were evicted on June 21 after the Western Cape High Court granted an interim eviction order.
Yesterday, Judge Robert Henney made the order final, despite “passionate pleas” from a few occupiers, the Cape Times reported today.
According to the report, he said most occupiers were unhappy with the land claims process.
“That really is an issue in this country… it is not unique to this specific case.”
Henney ordered the rural development department to investigate what happened to one family’s land claim.
He also ordered the City of Cape Town to submit a report to the court on suitable alternative accommodation.
