The area has seen thousands of illegal shacks being erected over the past months as both South African and foreign nationals moved to the city to live. The issues of land, and its redistribution, is an important topic in South Africa as the government looks at the option of handing land to previously disadvantaged communities without payment to the land owners. Houses in Lensasia south, where these invasions happened, have lost 40 percent value as residents tried to stop trespassers from taking more land. EPA-EFE/KIM LUDBROOK
