One hundred residents from Freedom Park, Tafelsig will march to the Mitchell’s Plain Magistrate’s court on Wednesday 30th January following pending evictions.
This comes after four families in the area are said to be evicted soon.
“They say that they cannot help the people who live in shacks yet the people have been living there for over 10 years,” says spokesperson of the Tafelsig People’s Forum Sharia Abraham.
Abraham added that there are empty houses in the area however the council does not want to allocate these houses to the families.
”Each family has about three children and some are pregnant, if they want to put them out then we will take action,” says Abraham.
The residents will be marching from 112 Tafelberg Road to the Mitchell’s Plain Magistrate’s court.
