Houses worth thousands of rands built illegally have been demolished in Soshanguve, South Africa.
Jaws were left dropping on the ground when bulldozers were witnessed demolishing houses built on private property.
It is believed that the houses occupying the land were built regardless of the government having warned them to not continue with the building proceedings.
It is alleged that the house owners paid an amount of R50 000 to an unknown individual who gave them access and permission to the land.
The houses that are demolished cost about over R500k but the government seem to have no pity for the owners, instead the houses are put down to the ground by a bulldozer accompanied by law enforcement officers.
Videos of the demolishing is making the rounds on social media, bringing forth flashbacks of a demolishing that took place back in 2019, housed that were not so long ago put down in Soweto and a year ago, a few houses in the Eastern Cape but the municipality later offered a land for the illegal residents to legally occupy.
Social users had their own opinions to say in result of the video and many found no problem in the government destroying the houses.
