MEYERTON – Midvaal mayor Bongani Baloyi claims the Economic Freedom Fighters party is illegally selling private land in the area at rock-bottom prices.
He said the owners of the land are now trying to obtain an urgent interdict against the illegal occupation.
“Even today [Saturday] we had close to a thousand people there to register,” he said.
Baloyi has been in hiding since service delivery protests started in the area during the past week.
He believes his life is in danger.
