[...] MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela has lied to us over and over. Yesterday he gave houses to people from Gugulethu but ignored promises made to our own community. Yesterday, our protest was to let Madikizela know that our patience is running thin and that he better start addressing our Constitutional right to housing. Mandela Park is a ticking time bomb and the MEC is making it tick even faster each time he lies to and misleads residents. Click here for some photos of last night’s mass protest. [...]
The Mandela Park strugle wont stop as long as the Officials are not willing to give respect and attend to our demands. The MEC’s behavior to USE meida and public platform to vilify Back yarders is perceved as a contributing factor to a already detoriating situation. Calling us hooligans and using media and other public platform to vilify us wont help but cuting you deep.
May you ancestors guide and protect, you have made Mandela Park a no go zone especially to you.
