The Social Justice Coalition said the recent dramatic protests on the N2 were not isolated and spontaneous.
Last week the N2 was closed by former employees of Sannicare, a private company contracted by the City of Cape Town to service certain container toilets across the city’s informal settlements.
The workers say they have been mistreated.
Thousands of residents who use the toilets were without them for weeks as buckets became full and were not being collected and emptied.
SJC’s Axolile Notywala the City needs to act because the Sannicare Company is paid by theCity, and can not just say it is an employee-employer related dispute.
“The City should be responsible to monitor these outsourced services, and we as the SJC said the City failed to monitor the service, we would like the City to act immediately” Notywala added.
