Bela-Bela EFF co-ordinator Sello Moswoeu was expected to appear again in court on Friday 26 January.

He faces a charge of trespassing.

The charges were a direct consequence of an EFF-championed illegal land invasion in downtown Bela-Bela last October.

Moswoeu was charged with trespassing on Tuesday, 28 November, as a direct result of the invasion of a piece of municipal land along Alma Road.

The incident pushed panic buttons all-round, with both property-owners and residents of nearby Spa Park up in arms over the EFF’s actions.

The disputed piece of land, owned by the Bela-Bela Local Municipality, lies between Spa Park and Ward 1.

In respect of the judicial principle of sub judice, Moswoeu issued a statement to the effect that land invasions had been “put on hold.” 

In recent weeks the EFF local leader committeed to push towards a land audit report at Bela-Bela.

Municipal spokesperson, David Raborolo, said correspondence in this regard had not, at the time of going to print, been forthcoming, at least not as yet.
