Members of the community are hereby warned against illegal activity taking place at Extensions 126 and 127 next to zone 5 in Seshego. The public is being alerted that the group or individuals busy with enlisting people for promises of allocation of sites are not Polokwane Municipality officials and therefore not acting on behalf of the municipality.

This action is an effort to disrupt and frustrate the municipality's planned process of relocating residents from the informal settlements of Freedom Park and Extension 106 to the new formalized sites of Extensions 126 and 127.

As a result of these illegal activities, the municipality has acquired a court order that prohibits anybody to occupy municipal land without the permission of the municipality.

The municipality will take legal action against those perpetuating these acts. It must be noted that should anybody erect or build a structure on that land, such a structure will be demolished as per the court order.

Polokwane Municipality further urges community members to refrain or shy away from participating in such activities, but approach the municipality to acquire the land in a legal manner.

The municipality was supposed to start with the process of relocating community members from  Freedom Park and Extension 106 to Extensions 126 and 127 on Monday, 13th June 2022.
