SANDF in court over evictions

JOHANNESBURG - The National Defence Force is back in court on Wednesday.

It was found in contempt for failing to find alternative accommodation for hundreds of Marievale residents.

Earlier this year, a court ruled that people living on the now unused eastern Gauteng military base were unlawfully evicted.

The SANDF was given three months to either allow them to return to the homes they were occupying or provide alternative accommodation.

Marievale has not been used as a military base for at least eight years.
