Today afternoon, the recently formed Abahlali baseMjondolo hosted through Khayelitsha’s informal settlements or Cape Town mayoral committee member Dan Plato and other city officials.

This walkabout will provide the residents of these communities with an opportunity to demonstrate directly to city officials the lack of even rudimentary services in their communities.

Mzonke Toni of the Anti-Eviction Campaign said,

“Dan Plato was asked to bring along and the main purpose of this walkabout is to go to these informal settlements that are not yet serviced with the foremost services”

Toni added, “We want the people to take the officials around the places that are no serviced so that the officials witness the situation”

“On the other hand, the walkabout is about creating a platform for community leaders to show the officials what kind of service they want and where do they want it?”
