On October 2, 2009 Cape Town municipality officials Randall Skrikker and Richard Hollstock handed out notice letters regarding the allocation process in the Mitchells Plain CBD. However, Traders find the contents of the letters to be very intimidating. Traders are still uncertain about the eviction, but law enforcements are already on the scene in the Town Centre – as the letter notes: “Law Enforcement will monitor the area and implement a By-Law enforcement strategy to deal with any infringements.”
Wednesday, October 7, 2009 there will be a meeting with CHATA and city official Mr. Randall Skrikker. This meeting has been called by the Traders to speak to Mr. Skrikker about the irregularities in the allocation process. All are welcome to attend at the Mitchells Plain Town Centre library at 13h00.
As a result of the problematic allocation process, on Wednesday, October 14, 2009 CHATA will be marching against the city’s decisions to move forward with evictions. Traders will organise at 10h30 from the Mitchells Plain Town Centre. The march will resume at 11h00 and go from the Town Centre to Keizergracht Square to continue with the march. All are encouraged to come and support the struggles of the Traders.
