The Congress of South African Trade Unions has learned that families who were illegally evicted by a farmer in the area of Koster by the racist farmer called Snyman more than five years ago, are struggling with no food, no IDs, children without birth certificates and with poor accommodation.
The farmer dumped the two families from the farm next to the Tshedimosetso primary school many years ago and he never came back to check them. The school has had to try and accommodate the families in the school premises up to today.
The worse situation is that the first family of 12 people with young kids are staying in one room, and the other is staying in one room with 21 people, in the same conditions as the others.
We call on the Departments of Home Affairs, Social Development and Health, and the police to join us during our visit to the farm tomorrow, 6th May 2014 at 12h00.
This how poor farm workers with their families are being treated by white farmers and brutally killed in the long run.
We are told that most of families are sick due to hunger and many other things.
The two families are Jobonto and Vertein. The contact number for the families is 083347505.
We are inviting the media to be there at our visit to the farm tomorrow, and to please expose such criminality created by white farmers.
For more information feel free to call COSATU NW Provincial Secretary, Solly Phetoe, on 0823044055.
