Johannesburg - The African National Congress (ANC) in the Joburg Region said it received shocking news that a local councillor in Lenasia was working with a syndicate in a scheme of illegal land invasions.
Jolidee Matong, ANC Joburg spokesperson has made a call to anyone who might have information on the alleged syndicate to come forward. He said he was informed of the matter by Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba on Monday morning.
“Today we have learnt from Mr (Herman) Mashaba that a local councillor in Lenasia is working with a syndicate in a scheme of illegal land invasions.
"The ANC calls on Mr Mashaba and anyone who has knowledge of councillors and individuals involved in illegal land invasions to report to law enforcement agencies with immediate effect,” Matong said.
He has also urged Mashaba to provide information and evidence to back up this accusation so further action could be taken.
