Political point scoring

"There are situations where there are more than two families using a toilet, and where people are forced to relieve themselves on the N2 or resort to the bucket system."They have to share their location with rats that are as big as cats. We want to start unlocking development in Site C as it is the oldest informal settlement in Khayelitsha."

Western Cape Housing and Local Government MEC, Richard Dyantyi - On plans to "immediately" relocate thousands of Khayelitsha squatters to "open land" in the area.

Dyantyi said while not all their housing plans would happen "overnight", [& lets pray not based on the 'success' of the N2 Gateway project failure] he wanted the relocation of these residents to be "immediate".He said they were still in the process of outlining initiatives. Really?
