Two children have died in the Athlone fire that destroyed 300 shacks


Two children have died and 300 shacks were destroyed in a devastating fire in Vygieskraal informal settlement last night, the ANC Athlone parliamentary Constituency Office said. The MP for Athlone mentioned the unbearable and inhuman conditions in which people are living in informal settlements throughout the Western Cape, adding that after years the City of Cape Town fails to spend its budget allocation for housing. Jacobs said the MEC for Human Settlements, Mr Simmers, must be called to account for the loss of lives at Vygieskraal and called for communities in informal settlements to unite and demand their constitutional right to safe and adequate housing.

The displaced community was aided by Evangelical Lutheran Church of SA and Gift of the Givers and asks the public for donations that can help the people who have lost everything and drop it off at our Parliamentary Constituency Office at Ebfin Bldg 1 George Street Athlone.
