An enquiry into evictions on the Lwandle land in Cape Town heard that the Ses'Khona People's Rights Movement, a shack dwellers' non-governmental organisation, is not cashing in on the matter in any way.
The organisation’s leader, Loyiso Nkohla testifies that, "When Ses'Khona arrived there during these evictions, it was not the only time Ses'Khona was there. In January 2014, from the first eviction, we were invited by the community and helped them, not knowing anyone…We want to make that point very clear. Ses'Khona Rights Movement is not a group of opportunistic people who want to go all over."
The enquiry was hearing evidence to determine what happened when illegal shack dwellers were removed from South Africa’s National Roads Agency Limited (SANRAL) land in Lwandle, on 2 and 3 June 2014.
