In photos: Jeppestown eviction

By K Tleane & K Mahlangu 30 September 2015

In April, residents of a building in Jeppestown protested when they were served with eviction notices. On Tuesday, the eviction took place unexpectedly. The Red Ants arrived and evicted people in one building. Some residents responding by throwing rocks. The Red Ants hit back by firing rubber bullets. Later the building caught fire. No one knew who was responsible but one thing was clear: those evicted had nowhere to sleep on Tuesday night. KGOMOTSO TLEANE and KHOTSO MAHLANGU were there.
