‘We’re not going anywhere’ - tenants

2017-10-12 06:00

RIET River tenants vowed to fight back and oppose their eviction after the owner of the farm, Logan Govender – managing member of Hope Fountain Investments CC, served them with eviction notices in August.

Kistanasamy agreed that she signed an agreement on behalf of the residents at a Rental Housing Tribunal in 2011.

The Weekly received copies of an agreement signed between residents and Hope Fountain Investments CC in 2011 whereby both parties agreed on the terms and conditions.

The agreements said that tenants agreed to vacate their dwellings on the condition that the owner of the land was going to give each family R15 000. Residents said they have been renting on the farm for the past 20 years, but their houses were falling apart.
