“Our grievances are that the councillor of Ward 39, Gladstone Ntamo of the ANC, applied for the housing subsidy on our behalf without our knowledge and now he is building tiny houses that we cannot live in. We went to talk to various officials in the DA city but they all tell us that the problem lies with our councillor and he does not want to talk to us, he uses vulgar words against us”.

“The rain is heavy and the people are panicking. We called disaster management last time but the councillor turned them away and told them there are no floods here. We don’t know what to do and that is why we are marching. DA housing minister Bonginkosi Madikizela also did not help us, even though he promised to get back to us after a meeting, he never did” says community leader Nolubelo Masimini.
