On Wednesday evening Richard Dyantyi, MEC for Local Government and Housing in the Western Cape is going to meet with residents and leaders of Bhekela in Mfuleni to speak of decisions to be taken by the leadership of the affected communities and the Province regarding relocation.

The community of Mfuleni and the MEC had a number of meetings trying to resolve the relocation debacle as the community of Mfuleni decided not to let families relocate from disaster affected areas in Khayelitsha to Berndale.

“The meeting is to discuss who should be relocated from the flood affected areas,” says spokesperson for the MEC Vusi Tshose.

Tshose says more than 1800 families from the TR section who find themselves living under the unsafe and difficult conditions along the railway line and the flooded areas had to relocate to Berndale in December last year already.

“Residents of Mfuleni were not happy because they wanted to be included in the plans of possibly relocating residents to Berndale land. The MEC and the department will work tirelessly in ensuring that the people who are living under the inhuman conditions are getting the priority they deserve from the provincial government,” says Tshose.

The meeting is taking place tonight at Nyameko Primary School – on the corners of Tokwana and Pokwana Streets, Extension 4 – Mfuleni at 6pm.
