So I get a call, end of last year, from a lawyer with good news. The property agent has secured a buyer for my flat at a giveaway price – R25k. I accept, sign and wait for my boodle. Lawyer calls me a few minutes ago saying the buyer is pulling out of the deal. He just went to the flat to check out what’s what and he almost gets murdered by the occupiers. Says his life is worth more. Occupiers have hijacked the entire building, not just my flat. Two years ago they threatened to kill me when I tried to collect rent. Told me never to return. I didn’t.
