Protests hit the Cape again

Service delivery Protests have yet hit the Cape in full swing again with disgruntled workers and commuters doing anything possible to halt the City of running as smooth as possible.

Just yesterday, protestors went out in full force barricading Cape Town highways such as the N2 including suburbia inlets in efforts of making their voice heard with regards to the poor service delivery by the powers that be namely the City of Cape Town (read DA).

In Northpine alone, in a case that could not necessarily be linked to protest collateral damage, two council workers were shot while working on site.

Amidst all this, the City of Cape Town’s Premier Helen Zille and MEC for Human Settlements, Bonginkosi Madikizela have set to hand over more than 300 high density housing units as part of the Joe Slovo Phase 3 Housing Project in Langa, today, a area infested with disgruntled protesters.
The project is aimed at transforming the Joe Slovo informal settlements into a dignified community by providing more housing opportunities that minimizes the relocation of people.

The project also allows for a meaningful engagement between all role players in the project, to avoid past mistakes and to adhere to the June 10 2009 Constitutional Court ruling.
