false claims of erf's available in postmansburg

The office of the Mayor at the Tsantsabane Local Municipality has issued an official statement to address a trending social media post that states that residents of Postmansburg should prepare themselves for 1000 plots that will be made available in wards 3 and 6 in the area. In addressing this matter the municipality says this post is false and that it is only the municipality that has ownership and authority to allocate land through its own official processes therefore unauthorized councilors and officials who are allocating land are doing so against the municipal code of conduct. The municipality says these acts are made illegal by the unlawful occupation of land act 19 of 1998 and the trespass act of 1959. The municipality further adds that councilors, officials, and community members are requested to refrain from such acts and warn any person who commit such acts that the municipality will be forced to take legal action against such individuals.
