Non-profit organisation Ndifuna Ukwazi says the City of Cape Town’s plans to dispose of publicly-owned land is indicative of it’s failure to prioritise housing for the poor.
This as the city prepares to auction-off several of its properties. Land activists want the land to be developed for social housing. One of the properties up for auction is a plot of land in College Road, Claremont.
Ndifuna Ukwazi’s Head of Research and Advocacy Michael Clark says, “The city needs to establish a coordinated response to it’s management of public land – that sets out clear responsibilities, clear powers and makes sure that land is pro-actively identified and managed to meet it’s broader constitutional and legislative obligations to actually give effect to affordable housing and to redistribute land and give more people equitable access to land.”
The city of Cape Town says it’s still formulating its response.
