Nearly 2,000 humans have been evicted from a housing improvement in Johannesburg.

According to neighborhood media, the occupants of the housing improvement were evicted by using the so called Red Ants on Wednesday

The Red Ants are a non-public protection organisation in South Africa specialising in clearing “illegal invaders” from properties. They had no longer carried out such evictions for almost 4 months after the government prohibited evictions in the course of the COVID-19 lockdown if no alternative housing is provided.

With lockdown now not but lifted in the us of a with the most covid-19 instances in Africa, it’s doubtful for many why this eviction took place.

According to the government, about 1.2 million human beings in the Gauteng province, consisting of Pretoria and Johannesburg are in need ample housing.
