Mandela Park residents demand meeting with MEC over housing

Mandela Park backyard residents today demanded an urgent meeting with the Western Cape Housing MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela to discuss their housing problems.

Earlier this year, the MEC laid criminal charges against several residents from the area after they vandalised newly built homes.

In a terse letter to Madikizela, the residents demand answers on when he intends building their houses.

They also accused the MEC of negligence, saying he refused to attend previous meetings with them and that this had damaged his credibility.

The community accused Madikizela of lying to them by promising them homes.

Madikizela had said in the past their demands would only be addressed when they raised them in a civil manner.
