JOHANNESBURG - Residents of Eldorado Park’s extension 6 will find out on Wednesday if they can carry on living on government land they have occupied.

The urgent application by the National Association for the Advancement of the Aboriginal People of Southern Africa will finally be heard.

Proceedings were adjourned on Tuesday to give the group time to seek legal representation.

Residents occupied the vacant government land and set up housing structures.

Last week, authorities stopped them from building any further and removed them from the land.

The group claims there are more than 100,000 people in the area who need housing.
