More police have been deployed in Khayelitsha today.
This after Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille announced that city officials will start enclosing the controversial open toilets in Makhaza with concrete structures today.
Over a thousand open toilets were installed in the area in 2009.
The city was later accused of flouting residents' basic right to dignity.
Corrugated iron enclosures were broken down by angry residents.
