Didiza met with all stakeholders to engage in discussions on a way forward for District Six.
This was Didiza’s second engagement with the interest groups, which represent 5000 claimants. Didiza gave each group homework to come up with a conceptual framework for the redevelopment of the area.
Tania Kleinhans-Cedras, chairperson of the District Six advocacy group, said: “The development framework can only be justifiable based on the right to ownership of land.”
Kleinhans-Cedras also slammed the department for trying to eject the media from the meeting.
