Cape Town - Western Cape Premier Helen Zille is expected to brief media in Cape Town on the Lwandle inquiry, among other matters, on Tuesday.

The inquiry, into the removal of 849 families from Sanral-owned land on 2 and 3 June, began on Monday.

Set up by Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu last month, it heard that the evictees would be moved back to the land they were evicted from.

Another piece of land they had been moved to, also belonging to the SA National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral), was found to be inadequate.

Residents are currently being housed in a community hall.

About 200 informal corrugated iron structures with concrete floors were being erected to house them on the original piece of ground.

Sanitation and other basic services were also being provided.

During the evictions, about 200 illegally erected shacks were burnt and demolished after Sanral was granted a court order authorising the evictions.

The residents will be housed in the informal structures until they can be permanently resettled through a City of Cape Town housing project to be completed in Macassar next year.
