Coronation Park is an informal settlement in the municipal caravan park of Krugersdorp. The local municipality got a court order to evict everyone that resides there by the 16th of December.

“There is a R22 million contract on this place. They are busy building a theme park or something like that for the people. That is why they are evicting us and we feel it is unfair. There are a lot of people that have been living here for fifteen years.” – Denise Harrington
