Question posted in the General Law category relating to Gauteng

I am a business owner currently working on a projects worth 1,5 million. Yesterday on the 25 of January 2023 I was at Florida police station with group of people who call them self a business forum. 

The business forum wanted me to leave and stop working at their area of residence which is fleurhof. So I told them I can on leave the area if I am compensated for the work I've done. 

After a long day of talking about the matter it was agreed that we must have something in writing stating that I will be paid for the work done.

With that said we agreed that I will sign an affidavit which state that they will pay me and they signed an affidavit I wrote which also stated I will be compensated for the work I've done. 

The one mistake I did was I did not  read their statement before signing it because  I had mine which they signed which states that I'll be compensated.
