The area committee for QQ section in Khayeliltsha met with officials from the City of Cape Town and members of the mayor’s Executive Committee on Tuesday, December 13.
QQ section made headlines when residents embarked on protest marches demanding to be moved to serviced plots as a first step towards getting houses.
The meeting was the first time since the struggle in QQ section gained prominence in May that officials came to see conditions in which people live. Leader of the QQ section area committee Mzonke Poni said they resorted to burning tires since their councilor and Council officials ignored them for so many years.
