Johannesburg - The inquiry investigating the Lwandle evictions from Sanral-owned land in Cape Town has called for all interested parties to make final submissions.

"Having gone through the scheduled process of the oral public hearings, the inquiry is now affording the last opportunity for different parties [individuals and or organisations] to submit in writing relevant inputs," it said in a statement on Wednesday.

"Upon receiving written submissions, the inquiry may decide to invite parties for oral hearings at a date and venue to be announced in due course."

The deadline for submissions is 15 September, at 16:00.

The inquiry said relevant parties included non-governmental organisations, political parties, and ordinary people.

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

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

The inquiry was appointed by Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu.

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