CAPE TOWN - Sir Lowry's Pass Village residents on Thursday said government had an 'out of mind out of sight' approach when dealing with their issues.
Residents have been involved in violent protests with police for the past two days taking to the streets of the village against poor service delivery.
Roads leading into the village have been blocked by residents using trees stumps and burning tyres.
Protestor Joe Madina believes the provincial Democratic Alliance-led government is trying to hide housing delivery issues by placing people in an area like Sir Lowry's Pass Village.
“We are hidden away from the main road and I think it’s easy to forget about us. We are fed up of these living conditions and we want action.”
Meanwhile, a resident of nearby Knorhoek which lies behind Sir Lowry's Pass Village says protestors are preventing people from getting to work.
The woman says protestors are intimidating farm workers trying to pass through the village.
“Farm workers have been intimidated and they have been warned to stay away from work.”
Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille is expected to visit the area later.
