    Default 'We are not going anywhere, Olievenhoutbosch is our home' - illegal land occupiers

    Johannesburg - "Tell the police, government and the people here, we are not going anywhere. This is our land and we are here to say."

    Land invaders in Olievenhoutbosch in Midrand were adamant on Monday afternoon that they would not be forcibly removed by the government or the police.

    People had made their way into the area, along the R55 and west toward Diepsloot and into Mnandi, early on Friday morning, March 9. By Saturday afternoon, they had occupied large tracts of land; each piece was marked with red-and-white barrier tape.

    Police and residents had removed markers in certain areas on Monday.

    On Monday afternoon, Jack Kgosana had allocated to himself a piece of ground, measuring 15m by 25m.

    The 39-year-old said the land had been vacant for more than 20 years and no one occupied it.

    Kgosana said they have pleaded with the government to give them the land.

    "We don't want government to deny us this piece of land because we have nowhere else to go. If I have a stand of my own, I can at least have a home of my own," he said.

    He plans to live there with his family for the rest of his life.

    Michael Chauke, 44, lives in a back room in one of the extensions in Olievenhoutbosch.

    He lost his job at a courier company in December.

    "It is difficult to provide for the family because there is no income now."

    They should also move into Sandton, Midrand and Pretoria's affluent areas and take open erfs, move into people's homes who have big yards and live there. Also move into unoccupied houses that are being rented out and is not currently occupied. Quality of life will be so much better and it won't cost a cent.

    That piece of land is meaningless if you don't have a title deed for it.

    Surely they have an indigenous name for the area, rather than Olievenhoutbosch?

    This is exactly the point. Why can they not have services? Landgrab is wrong, but face it, due to the ANC's ineptitude in addressing this matter the 'masses' as you call them have now waited long enough. Mugabe has exactly the same problem, then his army got fed up and grabbed themselves some farms.

    Do you have a solution? We need to find a way to atone the 'masses' before they just take matters into their own hands.

    The masses should also invade Bryntirion - massive erfs open there, move in with the people living there - massive security, free electricity and water - super wealthy home tenants who will look after squatters and landgrabbers. Wonderful life they can have there...

    Well, obviously the masses do not care about that. They just want to live there.

    That is exactly what is going to happen and the property owners will soon find themselves paying for the water and electricity these people will illegally be connecting themselves to.

    There really is only one solution. While many people will not want to go this route right now, in a couple of years this will be the only way... and that is arming yourself and defending yourself until the end.
