Residents of Hangberg protest outside the WC High Court
18 October 2010
Residents of Hangberg gathered outside the Western Cape High Court today.
Hangberg residents gathered outside the court, to protest the City of Cape Town’s eviction order to have more than 50 shacks built on the slopes of the Sentinel in Hout Bay down.
Most residents are still very angry and frustrated at the situation and especially at Helen Zille.
The City of Cape Town is very hopeful that proceedings in court will go their way, as the illegal shacks are built on a fire hazard area.
On the other hand locals have stated that the evictions were handled very badly.
