Naked eviction: Cape Town mayor claims 'to some extent it was a staged act'

Sisulu said while land occupations were illegal, nobody would be evicted.

"Once somebody is in their house that has been put up, if there is any eviction necessary the law enforcement agencies are required to approach the courts to do that. They may not do what was done in Empolweni (Khayelitsha). Between ourselves and the Human Rights Commission, we have taken this on review to the courts. It is a breach of human rights on a prenominal level and it will not be accepted," she said.

Sisulu also said provision has been made to provide water for those living in informal settlements.

Rand Water CEO Sipho Mosai said tanks have been delivered to a total of 158 municipalities and districts between March and June.
