According to a report by EWN, Lekota wants law enforcement to help secure the rights of landowners.

It is an ongoing problem that land is being illegally occupied in Kliprivier.

Lekota told the community that the only way to end this problem and deal with it is through voting out the ANC.

Vote the ANC out. Vote in a government of men and women who are going to do what the Constitution says must be done.

Lekota added that land should be expropriated but not without compensating the owners.

You can’t let anybody and everybody just run onto somebody’s property. The Constitution does not allow that.

To conclude his visit to the area, Lekota paid a visit to the De Deur Police Station to talk about the illegal occupation cases.
