Pretoria - Some residents of Itireleng near Laudium, west of Pretoria, were evicted without the relevant court order, the Azanian People's Organisation claimed on Thursday.

"This refers to evictions carried out in portion 25 of the farm Mooiplaats in Ward 61, Tshwane," Azapo's Gauteng chairperson Samore Herbstein said in a statement.

The Anti-Privatisation Forum was on Thursday meeting with lawyers to draft an urgent application to the North Gauteng High Court, in a bid to force the government to provide housing to those evicted. The application would be filed at a later stage, not on Thursday, as reported earlier.

Herbstein claimed the sheriff of the court, the City of Tshwane, police and Tshwane metro police at the scene refused or failed, since Tuesday, to supply a copy of the court order to either Azapo or the attorney hired by Itireleng residents.

"We call for the police to ensure that the property of residents of portion 25 of Mooiplaats, including their roof sheeting, be returned to them."

He said when residents were evicted on Monday, the sheriff had a copy of the court order for portion 15, not for portion 25.

"Azapo calls for residents of portion 25 to return to their homes until the City of Tshwane provides proof that the eviction was legal."

Owner of the land, cement company PPC, was granted the eviction order by the North Gauteng High Court.

The party called for donations of food, tents and building material to help those displaced.
