BLF leader, Andile Mngxitama invades double-storey mansion in Pretoria after noticing no one was living in it

The BLF decided to move into the big house after noticing no one was living in it. The High Court in Pretoria has refused to get involved on an urgent basis after a double-storey mansion in diplomat’s row in Brooklyn, Pretoria, was invaded by a group associated with Black First, Land First (BLF). The house “invaders”, who claim to be students, moved into the unoccupied thatched-roof house last month after getting a locksmith to open the door for them. When confronted, they allegedly said they could not afford accommodation and called their “lawyer”, who turned out to be BLF leader Andile Mngxitama, who is not an attorney. The executor in the estate of the house’s deceased owners, attorney Mike Potgieter, launched an urgent application to have the students evicted, saying they illegally gained access to the property and were trespassing. Judge Nelisa Mali, however, ruled that the application was not urgent and struck it off the roll. The main house on the property ha…

The group claims that a previous memorandum handed to the Tshwane metro in March was not taken seriously.

Illegal land grabbers in Faerie Glen, Pretoria East became very hostile and threatened the community that they will burn down their homes and kill them

Dear Residents, I just got back from an attempted land grab of Municipal Property in Faerie Glen, Plaston Str. I arrived on site this afternoon with the community who wanted to meet with the 'owners' of the property after they started building and even put in an illegal water connection to this property, probably to make the construction seem more legitimate. Unfortunately for the land grabbers, the community is very well organized and aware of the fact that this property is a Municipal Road Reserve. I immediately contacted the MMC as well as the Chairperson of Roads & Transport from the site, who confirmed my position that no Municipal Land was sold to these 'owners'. I proceeded to disrupt this meeting, saying that we cannot engage with thugs grabbing land and, unless they can prove the contrary, they should leave - this prompted the land grabbers, who were very diplomatic up until then, to show their true colors and intent. The land grabbers became very h…
