Call to stop Cape Peninsula evictions

The Independent Democrats caucus in the City of Cape Town has called on Mayor Helen Zille to urgently intervene to suspend evictions and water cut-offs in the city during the winter months. The ID says Zille should consider the hardship resulting from an emergency situation such as the icy temperatures that will impact on the health of the poor and infirm. Many people are facing the prospect of a winter on the streets and many are without clean water in an already unsanitary environment. Spokesperson Simon Grindrod says the party has already received more than 150 calls for help from residents of some of the poorest areas. These people have been served eviction notices by the City.
