Watch: Luxurious Houses Demolished in Soshanguve

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.
