HRC calls for Public Protector to step in Bonnytoun informal settlement in Wynberg

The Human Rights Commission has reported the City of Cape Town to the Public Protector following complaints of complete lack of service delivery at the Bonnytoun informal settlement in Wynberg.

 The complaints are similar to the sanitation issues raised by the Social Justice Coalition and prove that the City is infringing upon the rights to dignity of our homeless people.

HRC’s Colin Arendse said there’s been an instance where the toilets are not clean up to five months, there are broken pipes that leak, there is water every time.

“Clearly this city has failed homeless people and that become the matter of a concern. The Public Protector needs to step in to ensure constitutional rights of these vulnerable members of our society are protected,” Arendse added.
