N2 gateway residents are seeking for the intervention of the city on crime and fraud they claim is happening in the block of flats.
Residents say the flats are not safe, thought there are security guards.
When residents approached the security company they said the Housing Development Agency is only paying them for access control and not to keep the Flats safe.
Recently a resident was hijacked at gunpoint in his own parking area.
Over the weekend 19 year old boy was stabbed to death outside his own home while the security guards slept on.
Western Cape Housing Minister Bonginkosi Madikizela was informed about the situation and said there is not much the city can do.
The Minister says his department is tied up as far as the N2 Gateway Pilot Project is concerned.
