Problematic Quigney houses demolished
The three problematic houses, number 37, 39 and 41 Moore street in Quigney, East London believed to be brothels and drug dens were demolished and sold last week.
Illegal occupants of the houses refused to move as they fought with police members on duty who were assisting the new owner, according to police spokesperson Captain Hazel Mqala.
Piloni Ndlodaka, the new owner bought the houses in May last year, but there were delays in the transfer process because the previous owners owed the municipality money. He sought a court order to remove people who had been illegally occupying the houses.
Two workers who were demolishing the houses have been admitted to hospital with injuries they sustained after they were attacked by the dwellers.
