Cape protests housing & service delivery

Communities around the Cape Penisula have protested against a lack of service delivery and housing. The marches, which were held in three areas, had varying turnouts. The first memorandum was handed over to the Steenberg Municipality by a group of coloured protesters who said they had been neglected and that preference had been given to blacks.

In Mandela Park in Khayelitsha, protetsters complained about the eviction of people who failed to pay their bonds. Meanwhile, in Crossroads, protestors stoned the councillor's house, claiming they are not involved in the decision-making on matters relating to the development of the area.,2172,116404,00.html
