The City of Cape Town in collaboration with the South African Property Owners Association has agreed that racism in the city has proven to be a barrier.

The city says, while the decent majority of people aren’t racist, the reality is that the minority has the power to shape wider perception.

The Executive Mayor Patricia de Lille, spokesperson Zara Nicholson says there is absolutely no room for racism in this country and in Cape Town we want to lead the way to building a positive right-based culture for all.

Nicholson said where there are incidents reported to us, we will investigate and take action if necessary.

Nicholson said they will deal with each and every complaint, no matter how small, and ensure that the relevant body investigates.

“The city is pleased that Sapoa has heeded our call and will be supporting the Inclusive City campaign where we seek to address issues of alleged racism and where we educate people on their rights and how to activate those rights” Nicholson added.
