FRANCISTOWN: Efforts to move some Somerset residents from their homes to make way for the construction of the Tonota-Francistown road have run into problems. Francistown mayor, James Kgalajwe has said not all the concerned residents are willing to move and some are querying the offers while others are refusing to cooperate.

He said one resident bought four plots with intentions to convert them to commercial use and is now refusing to move. “We have a man who purchased four plots and wanted to combine them and convert them to commercial use.

“We have now decided to obtain an order to evict him without his consent and go ahead and compensate him,” the mayor said. The second case involves a plot whose owner cannot be traced. The council intends to get an order and demolish the buildings on it to pave way for construction.
