Cape Town - Around 800 people evicted from Lwandle in Cape Town received hot meals as a cold front hit the city on Wednesday morning.

“There are around 800 people but we are catering hot meals, blankets, and mattresses for 1000 people,” said disaster risk management centre spokesman Wilfred Solomons-Johannes.

Residents were being accommodated at the Nonzamo community hall in Strand.

This, as a cold front brought very cold, windy, and wet conditions to the Cape, with snowfall expected over the high-lying areas of the province.

Solomons-Johannes said the residents were displaced after 223 shacks were demolished earlier in the week.

Their eviction began on Monday and continued into Tuesday. - Sapa
