Tensions flared when 257 families that had illegally occupied RDP homes were evicted from government houses in Phakamisa South outside King Williams Town on Tuesday morning.

The families who had been waiting for RDP houses for years illegally occupied the houses last month, while some young people in the area were accused of forcefully removing old people out of the houses.
