Gauteng Premier David Makhura set to visit Olievenhoutbosch

Gauteng Premier David Makhura will be visiting Olievenhoutbosch to discuss the land grab issue.

Residents of Olievenhoutbosch occupied a privately owned land in the area over the weekend and shared plots of land to build their houses.

Speaking to Ray White on The Midday report, Makhura says his visit will deal with issues community members raised during his visit with President Ramaphosa.

The people complained a lot about their counselors, they also raise issues about housing. There are also people who have moved into houses illegally.

Makhura says Olievenhoutbosch has developed into a formalised township and the province is doing a lot of work there.

There are also issues of crime in the area. The communities are not happy with the police station there. I will be going with the provincial commissioner and MEC for community safety.
