The affordable education loan option
Cape Town - Marchers from informal settlements across the Cape Flats gathered in the CBD on Monday morning for a march on the provincial legislature.
The protest was led by former ANC ward councillor Andile Lili, who has co-ordinated a number of faeces attacks across the city this year. Lili claims to be campaigning for better sanitation for residents of informal settlement
. However, the DA has accused him of using the protests to destabilise the province ahead of next year’s elections.
“Today we are converging the issues of sanitation and land. We will hand over a memorandum to the Department of Human Settlements,” Lili said.
“It calls for vacant tracts of land near Rondebosch to be made available for housing (for people who live in shacks on the Cape Flats wetlands).”
Mayor Patricia de Lille’s spokesman Solly Malatsi said the city had been informed about the march.
