Johannesburg - The ministerial inquiry's report into the Lwandle, Cape Town, evictions has been completed and will be handed over to Human Settlements Minister Lindiwe Sisulu, her office said on Thursday.

"The Minister of Human Settlements Lindiwe Sisulu has been informed by the chairperson of the ministerial [inquiry] on the eviction of Lwandle/Nomzamo residents Advocate Denzil Potgieter, that the [inquiry] has completed its task," spokesperson Ndivhuwo Mabaya said in a statement.

The report would be handed over to Sisulu in Cape Town next Wednesday.

Sisulu set up the inquiry to probe the forced removals from the SA National Roads Agency Limited road reserve on 2 and 3 June.

"At the time of the establishment of the [inquiry] the minister indicated that her main concern is that no citizens must ever be evicted without temporary accommodation," Mabaya said.
