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.
