Gugs AEC to pressure Social Development

1 03 2009

Gugulethu AEC Press Alert

Today we held our weekly mass community meeting in which we discussed Social Development’s politicisation of social grants.  The Gugulethu AEC has finally submitted our list of about 10,000 residents from Gugulethu, Nyanga, Mannenberg and Langa who are in dire need of support from Social Development.  Social Development has promised to dish out grants on the 19th of March, just in time for the elections.

Therefore, begining tomorrow morning at 9am, our community has decided to begin a process of daily mass actions to pressure Social Development and minister Zola Skweyiya to include all the poor in its various 19th of March grants – not just the ANC.

For more about our plans, contact Mncedisi at 078 5808 646, Speelman at 073 9825 725 and Pule at 073 6448 919.
