Disgruntled Langa residents have
called for the Expanded Works Programme for housing development to be
stopped. Residents are claiming that the
City of Cape Town is not
communicating with them about developments of the project.
Mayoral Committee Member for
Community Services Tandeka Gqada said the city has on numerous occasions
engaged with residents on this matter.
Gqada said as the City of Cape
Town we cannot start a project anywhere without
informing the community. We even have the project steering committee that is
consists of councillors from Langa and also the beneficiaries.
“So that is why I am saying I don’t
know who the angry Langa residents represent because they have been informed
even the ward committees. So we have
recognized structures in Langa and we always update the community of any
developments that are taking place in the area” Gqada added.
