Mkhwebane says another reason she is in Cape Town is to engage the community of Masiphumelele to know their right and take on the people they have elected to deliver basic services to them.

She says it is not right that just a few metres from Masiphumelele there's a community with less people but they receive all basic services.

We would like to deal with those systematic issues and if its a matter of changing laws then we need to change them.
