The hot topic of conversation on the Germiston City News Facebook page for the week, February 3 to 9, was:
Residents in Marguerite Avenue in Primrose are at their wits’ end over the alleged illegal goings-on at a house in the street. The many problems have been going on for a long time and residents have received no help from the metro or the police.
Charmaine Nienaber: “It is time something was done about all the illegal squatter homes in backyards. It is simply unhealthy, unhygienic and unbelievable that they pop up all over, without any legal building permits, yet we can’t do anything about it, because no one listens.”
Anet Cronje: “I know of other properties that are doing the same thing. People rent a house and not long after you will see two, three families living there. Before long they are renting rooms and the police are doing nothing.”
