HUMERAIL FAMILIES MOVE OUT AFTER EVICTION ORDER

Embattled families of Humerail, Port Elizabeth, moved out of their homes yesterday, a day before Transnet’s deadline for them to move today at 8am.

DA provincial housing spokesman Dacre Haddon visited the desperate residents yesterday to discuss their options.  Haddon said he was appalled that the premier and housing MEC had not yet acted on the matter.

“It is sad indeed. Although I understand that Transnet is fully entitled to evict these people after the court ruling, I am sure that if they applied their minds they could help these people find temporary alternative housing,” Haddon said.  Read the full story in The Herald.
