The City of Cape Town has
strongly condemned the violence which erupted in Kalkfontein over the weekend.
This as residents started
erected structures on land and law-enforcement had to intervene. In a statement
City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Human Settlements Benedicta
van Minnen said this behaviour will not be tolerated as it puts strain on the
City’s law enforcement agencies and the South African police.
The City has already laid charges against what
it labelled as political instigators of the recent illegal land invasions.
Minnen says this merely shows
how the political instigators have actually no interest to the delivery of
houses to the people of Cape Town but instead using this as a spring bush to
their own political ambitions.
The City of Cape Town is currently
perusing these matters and charges will be brought, Minnen added.
