Lots of shacks currently being erected between Dane road and M38, Hundreds of people marking plots and erecting shacks, not a cop or any type of law enforcement in sight.

Quite a surreal feeling driving past and see it happening.

Well, thisbis exactly what the protests in Rabie Ridge were about a two or so weeks ago & Metro demolished them in another area.

The community of Rabie Ridge complained and protested that shacks and informal settlements, erected right next to them would devalue their properties.

That is exactly my thought when somebody told me in the past about buying property in good areas as an investment, there is no such thing as a good area, it all can turn around in a matter of weeks for any area.

That's the problem if you live in an area next to a very big open field. You run the risk of it being taken over and devaluing your property.

I wonder if the people will ask Afriforum for help if the cops won't help. ;)
