The Mayor's representative for Area North at City of Cape Town, Suzette Little, says the community leaders in Joe Slovo do not recognise a group of people that have been damaging property in the area.
This follows the violent unrest that broke on Sunday when a MyCiTi Bus was torched, then a clinic, community hall, a principal's office where set alight on Monday in what has been described as service delivery protests.
She says the City has been engaging with community leaders on these matters and they have distanced themselves from a group identified as Isixwalo.
This is a group of people that have come in and the leadership of Joe Slovo don't even recognise them.— Cllr Suzette Little, Mayoral Committee Member for Area North
We are on the process of following up and ensure that we hold these people accountable for the damage that was done.— Cllr Suzette Little, Mayoral Committee Member for Area North
If you are telling this is a service delivery protest why burn down that hall that is serving 2500 children on a youth program? Why burn down the clinic.?... This is not a service delivery protest.— Cllr Suzette Little, Mayoral Committee Member for Area North
