The footage sparked outrage amongst tweeps, whom called for the government and police to put a stop to these illegal land grabs.

Andries H Matthysen, who goes by the Twitter handle @nesyhttam, wrote: "You see land expropriation cuts deep both ways. The principle of compensation must remain always."
Khoisan Pete, @johnpete56, added: "Is this what @MYANC and @EFFSouthAfrica is encouraging people to do? So why do they get upset when rightwing organizations propagate that #LandExpropriationWithoutCompensation is happening with the consent of the governing party - here is an example of lawlessness @CyrilRamaphosa."
