The African National Congress in the Western
Cape has announced that it will approach the
High Court to restore the dignity of fire victims in Valhalla Park after
its leadership and the Youth League visited the Agtstelaan informal settlement
in Valhalla Park.
About 1 400 people
were left homeless when 350 dwellings were destroyed by fire on Monday.
ANC Western Cape leader Marius Fransman questioned the fact
that no proper houses were built in that area after the court specifically
instructed the DA run government to do so five years ago already!
Fransman has also questioned DA councilor of Cape Town J.P.
Smith for wearing a bulletproof vest when he visited Agtstelaan?
Fransman said we found that there is no list yet after the
fire with the names of the affected people, which is totally unacceptable! This
is the first step to control and assess the disaster situation.
"I will also ask Cape mayor
Patricia de Lille to install toilets in the area and more water points, because
water and sanitation is a basic right and denying anyone that right in any way
is an affront to their human dignity,” Fransman said.
