On Monday members of the Social Justice Coalition, Equal Education and the Treatment Action Campaign will march through the streets of Khayelitsha.

 The march is to bring awareness to the lack of lighting in the region. It is believed that the lack of lights is a danger to both motorists and pedestrians.

 SJC’s Phumeza Mlungwana said the lack of street lights poses a risk to both drivers and pedestrians.

Mlungwana say Residents, especially children, risk being hit by cars when crossing roads at night.

Mlungwana furthermore adds that Khayelitsha has the highest number of motor vehicle related deaths in Cape Town twice as high as the city centre and five times as high as the Southern Suburbs and the lack of street lighting along busy roads contributes significantly to this.
