Kaylee Kruser | Eyewitness News

The Khayelitsha Backyarders are threatening protest action if Western Cape Human Settlements MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela does not meet with them soon.

He was supposed to attend a meeting earlier in the week to share his plans on the construction of houses for residents in the informal settlement.
However, he did not make the meeting and the Backyarders’ Loyiso Mfuku said the association’s members will march if he does not sit with them soon.

“It’s better for us to inform the community that a march is the only remedy. It is indeed the only remedy before us before we can take further steps,” he said.
