Attorneys say the residents were told ahead of time that Tuesday would be the day the evictions would be carried out.

Hannes Jordaan from Jordaan Attorneys said, "on numerous occasions, they have been notified, they are well aware of the situation. They're well aware that they have hijacked this property and they are not here on a lawful basis."
