W.Cape shack dwellers call for MEC’s resignation

Malungelo Booi | Eyewitness News

A group of Khayelitsha residents demanded the resignation of Western Cape Human Settlements MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela on Wednesday.

The small group held a demonstration outside the MEC’s office on Wednesday morning.

“Madikizela you’re an idiot and a puppet”, read one of the placards.

Abahlali baseMjondolo, which led the protest, warned it was just the start of their planned rolling demonstrations at the MEC’s office this week.
The body claims Madikizela failed to give them an assurance that no structures will be demolished even if erected illegally on government land.

The demonstrators mostly came from Mandela Park in Khayelitsha.

They warned that another community would come and protest on Thursday and said that this would continue until the MEC steps down.
