The City of Cape Town has on Tuesday approached disgruntled residents of the Lwandle community who have shut down parts of the N2 over service delivery protests.
On Monday, the community shut down N2 routes near Strand due to the lack of electricity in their homes.
The City of Cape Town’s Anda Ntsodo said, “We’ve sat down with the project steering committee. Engineers and electricity designers from the City of Cape Town came to brief community leaders. They said electricity will be installed at the beginning of 2018.”
Community leaders say enough is enough and the city needs to start taking care of its people.
This is the latest, but certainly not last, of service delivery protest in the area as the city has been struggling to provide basic services to periphery residents.
