Cape Town - An inquiry into the removal of people from Sanral-owned land in Cape Town will resume its public hearings next week, spokesperson Vusi Tshose said on Friday.

He said the inquiry, appointed by Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, would move to Nomzamo on Tuesday for a third round of public hearings.

Residents directly affected by the SA National Roads Agency Limited's (Sanral) removals on 2 June and 3 June would give oral presentations.

"In the interest of transparency and meaningful public participation, the inquiry will conduct its hearings in public and anyone interested can attend," Tshose said.

"However, this will apply on the basis of first come first served due to space limitations."

The hearings would start at the Lwandle Community Hall at 10:00.

The inquiry has spent the past few days collecting residents' statements.

On Monday and Tuesday it listened to testimony by Sanral, various NGOs and the Sheriff of the High Court who effected the removals through a court interdict.

Tshose said a fourth round of hearings was expected.
