Abahlali BaseMjondolo has written a letter to Mayor Patricia De Lille and Premier Helen Zille regarding difficulties that poor people in the province face.

On November 24th, poor communities attended The Western Cape Anti Eviction Campaign General Council event, in which it was decided that the poor communities will stay away from having joy, happiness and enjoying the summer holidays because they say they have nothing to celebrate because they live like slaves in the province.

 The Organisation`s Mthobeli Qona said they are giving and providing timeframe for the province and the City of Cape Town to respond within 30 days to their demands.

Qona said amongst their demands is that the victims of fires and floods be the responsibility of government.

Qona adds that if the provincial government does not respond they will embark on a protest.
