Botrivier residents won't sign agreement
Some Botrivier residents on Tuesday said they were not planning to sign any agreement with the local council.
CAPE TOWN - Some Botrivier residents on Tuesday said they were not planning to sign any agreement with the local council.
In May, residents embarked on a protest demanding RDP houses.
Demonstrators burnt tyres inside the local municipal office.
Authorities visited the area and promised to address their grievances.
Community leaders and officials representing the Theewaterskloof Municipality have held ongoing talks after the service delivery protests.
Demonstrators complained their communities were overlooked by the municipality, while wealthier areas benefited.
The Botrivier Residents Association's James Pfeiffer said they were not happy with the document presented by council.
"The community is not happy because there are no time frames to the agreements."
The Western Cape has reported the highest number of service delivery protest throughout the country.
Housing MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela admitted that the province has a housing backlog which stretches back to 24 years.
