The City of Cape Town’s Mayor Patricia de Lille has urged councillors to promote anti-racism campaign, during a full council meeting today.

The campaign is aimed at creating public platforms for dialogue to confront what makes some residents feel excluded, while others felt entitled.

De Lille says it is not the responsibility of government alone to promote reconciliation, it is the responsibility of each and every individual to deal with racism in this city.

De Lille said we in Cape Town want to promote reconciliation and fight racism while also instilling the rights that they have access to within them.

While racism is a problem for our country we are taking the lead here in Cape Town especially in context to the recent spate of racist incidents which have occurred.

“I would like all councillors to be part of this campaign by promoting this campaign within communities by engaging with the people in your respective communities” De Lille added.

De Lille also added that it is up to us to demonstrate bold leadership and to actively promote reconciliation within our city.
