“The community activist in eMbalenhle claimed that they had conducted an investigation and found that the land belonged to Sasol and the municipality was told not to build houses on the land unless the structure complied with a certain regulation or building code.  The cracks in some houses are noticeably larger, some stands are also flooding. Meanwhile, the residents are expected to stay in their houses.
