Isaac Mofali lies dying after being mortally wounded in close quarters fighting between the Red Ants and a community of people defending their homes built on squatted land in Vlakfontein. The Red Ants were carrying out a so-called 'demolition' operation to clear the dwellings and evict the squatters but the violent action resulted in the deaths of two people from among the community of squatters. The Red Ants are a controversial private security company often hired to clear squatters from land and so-called 'hijacked' properties.
