Hangberg upgrades shows how to force City to look after poor in Cape Town
8 December 2015
The Hangberg CRU upgrades were made possible by National Government who allocated the funding to the upgrades across the whole of the City.
This City has tried to force the poor communities out of the Hout Bay area.
They even resorted to violence that saw many of the Houtbay community suffer horrendous injuries. The City showed how they collaborated with the rich white people in the area against the poor communities, as they refused them housing in an area they had lived in for decades.
After the community brave struggles against the City, De Lille and Zille were forced to give people space and upgrades in the area. This must serve as an example to other poor communities neglected by DA in the City of Cape Town, to fight for their rights.
This is a great victory to the people of HangBerg over the tyranny of the DA against the poorer communities of the City of Cape Town!
