DA’s Deputy Leader and Western
Cape MEC for Human Settlements, Bongonkosi Madikizela, in a statement issued,
says it is clear that the protests in Grabouw the last few days are once again
the result of the Western Cape ANC's attempt to destabilise the area in the
run-up to the Local Government Election in August.
Madikizela says Western Cape Government
suspects high-level coordination by the ANC to illegally settle people on a
piece of land that belongs to the national Department of Public Works.
However, Eyewitnesses have
allegedly reported trucks delivering building materials to the area, believed
to be coordinated by the ANC.
Madikizela says the suspicion
that this illegal informal settlement is arranged and coordinated by the ANC,
is confirmed by the disgruntled ANC Councillor in Ward 11 in Grabouw, John
Michels, who allegedly recently publicly accused the provincial leaders of his
own party of encouraging people to illegally occupy the piece of land.
