The inhabitants of Lang had Dumisani Mgcina just stood and watched when the court sheriff led the strikes and the crap that yesterday came to his home.

He and 17 other families had refused to move from the continent Joe Joe's informal settlement to Lang in order to change the next phase of N2 Gateway's residential construction.

The Human Resettlement Department had turned to West Cape High Courts, which decided to delay the project after the destruction of these families by 2013.

Mgcina said that he was not told that eviction would be realized, and the structure was also his business.

"I've been here since 2003 and I could not find work, so I started to sell fruit, vegetables and chips to earn a living. This is very sad, because they said transferring us to Delft, I do not know what awaits us there. I have to start or find a job," he said.

The residents had transferred some of their possessions from their homes because their structures were destroyed.

Mabelithemba Zabezola said that she and her three children lived in the pattern and also used her business when selling braai meat.

Ntomboxolo Makhoba-Somdaka, spokesman for the Ministry of Human Rights in Britain, said that the residents refused to move the Delft's Temporary Transfer Point (TRA) and would have been a financial burden on the government and a delay in speeding up the delivery of housing.

He said the construction of the remaining 88 structures in Phase 3A will continue immediately and is expected to be completed by March 2019.

He stated that the project was launched in 2004 and was intended to provide 22 000 houses for people living in cabin and backyard areas along the N2 corridor.

The department approved the funding of 2,886 houses for construction Joe Slovo. To date, 1,664 houses have been completed and handed over to beneficiaries.

"Since 2013, we have had several challenges in implementing the project, as some residents refused to move and blocked the path of construction," he said.
