Clash over land turns into war of words over race

EASTERN CAPE - An ongoing dispute over land in Uitenhage in the Eastern Cape, has again turned violent.

Residents of Rosedale Extension 1 claim the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has officially handed over land to them.

At the same time, residents of Phola Park and Kwa Langa say they have been fighting for the same land.

But the municipality says developments on the land ear-marked for both communities have been hampered by political interference.
