JOHANNESBURG: THE South African Communist Party (SACP) has disapproved the ongoing evictions banks in Gauteng are allegedly conducting. A protest is scheduled for the weekend to push the bank to halt such action.
“SACP through Mass Organizations under the leadership of the Financial Sector Campaign Coalition will lead a march of communities from all the townships around Gauteng and Inner City dwellers, who are highly affected by the reckless and illegal evictions conducted by various banks in Gauteng Province,” Mhlekwa Nxumalo, Acting National Spokesperson of the SACP, said head of the action scheduled for Johannesburg on Saturday.
He said the march will be mainly directed to the Banking Association of SA and the Judiciary especially the Gauteng South High Court where many of the Eviction Court Orders are issued. “We will also be asking the Gauteng Government to intervene through moratorium on all evictions and for a government inquiry to be held into the legality of evictions which are now at epidemic proportions.”
