Housing activists accuse the Western Cape Government of not being committed to redressing the legacy of apartheid spatial planning in Cape Town.

Reclaim the City and Ndifuna Ukwazi jointly held a public meeting about the Tafelberg site.

In 2020, the Western Cape High Court set aside the sale of the Sea Point property to a private school.

The Province and  City were found to have breached their constitutional obligations to provide equitable access to land.

But they’ve taken the ruling to the Supreme Court of Appeal.

Ndifuna Ukwazi’s Buhle Booi says the province must build affordable homes on the land.

“if they’re committed to advancing the special justice they should not allow for this apartheid setting to continue. So if they’re serious indeed about advancing special justice, the Premier must unlock that parcel of land and build houses for people on that particular public site”.
