Johannesburg - Gauteng Premier David Makhura has promised the residents of Alexandra that the government will act on the erection of illegal structures in their township.
Makhura’s visit to Alexandra comes shortly after the residents' march to the City of Johannesburg’s region E offices in Sandton on Monday where they hoped to be addressed by Mayor Herman Mashaba but that never happened.
The Alexandra community raised concerns around the erection of illegal structures and illegal land invasion in the area.
“The community said to me that they have been raising this matter to the law enforcement agencies. I want to say the law enforcement agencies in their totality should deal with this issue.
“People are putting up illegal structures everywhere and this is going to make it very difficult to actually develop Alexandra,” Makhura said.
