Six appear in court for trespassing

Six people are to appear in the Goodwood Magistrates court on Monday following acts of public violence in Kensington over the weekend.
Metro Police spokesperson Nowellen Petersen told the Cape Times that four men and two women were arrested for public violence and failing to abide with lawful instruction. This sparked off when the structures of the six people were destroyed by authorities.
Petersen said due to instructions last week, 21 structures had to be removed. A docket was opened at the Kensington police station for trespassing. Then another deed took place at 18th Avenue and Acre Road.
The Metro Police reacted after being made aware of more structures being taken down, Petersen conceded.
Cape Town Mayor Helen Zille gave warning to local authorities that the housing processes are to be dealt with faster as chaos could develop in the city.
