SA Army Evicts Nigerian Woman From Military House1 year ago
The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) Army Support Base KwaZulu Natal (ASB KZN) on Wednesday evicted a Nigerian woman and her relatives from a military house in the KwaZulu Natal Province.
This came after the SANDF was granted an eviction order by the local court against the Nigerian woman.
In a statement on Thursday, SANDF Director Defence Corporate Communication, Brigadier General Andries Mokoena Mahapa, said the woman was married to a South African soldier who has since retired from service.
The soldier divorced the woman and left the property which was allocated to him as per the SANDF housing scheme for married military couples. Said Mahapa:
It was established that the woman invited her relatives to occupy the property with her. A Nigerian man and woman were found along with the woman and her two (2) daughters (20, 24 yrs. respectively) who each produced their SA Identification cards.
The Military Police enlisted the assistance of the Berea South African Police Services (SAPS) K9 Unit and the local Private Security to conduct a search of the property for any illicit goods and or criminal activities that may have been conducted at the property.
On arrival at the house, it was discovered that there was a high number of new and used electronic equipment and bicycles that the occupants failed to account for.
These have been confiscated from the occupants until such time they can account for the electronic equipment found at the house.
The illegal occupants of the house (245 Vause road. Essenhurst Estate, Berea, 4001) have since been evicted and the house secured.
The matter is under investigation by the relevant military and law enforcement officials to determine certain aspects connected to the matter.
