WATCH: Stellenbosch land owner gets eviction order after land invasion

Vacant land belonging to Louiesenhof Wines has been invaded in Stellenbosch.

The owners obtained an urgent interdict on Saturday to prevent more people from erecting more structures.

The order also makes provision for the confiscation of any building material not voluntarily removed by the occupiers.

The piece of land, Watergang, is subject to on-going negotiations between the owners and the Stellenbosch Municipality for possible sale.

The Stellenbosch municipality has around 22 000 people on its housing waiting list.
