Today, around about 100 people marched in Cape Town’s Civic Centre to demand that the Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille delivers a reasonable budget when she tables her final budget speech on Friday.

Social Justice System Axolile Notywala said there is R22 million of the water and sanitation for capital budget for all of 204 informal settlement.

“We think this is unfair and it’s not equitable all we want is for the Mayor to reconsiders her allocation on Friday and table a much better fair and equitable budget.” Notywala added.  

SJC and Ndifuna Ukwazi claimed to have facilitated over 500 submissions from informal settlement residents on the lack of water and sanitation infrastructure.
