Uphill life for Blikkiesdorp residents
With pressing issues like crime and lack of housing, Blikkiesdorp residents have no hope for change.
CAPE TOWN - Crime, road safety and lack of housing are among the most pressing issues facing the community of Blikkiesdorp in Delft.
But many residents said they don't believe these problems will be addressed after the 2014 general elections.
The City of Cape Town built the so-called temporary relocation area in 2007, to accommodate people on its housing waiting lists.
Blikkiesdorp resident Rachel Mahoka said she cast her vote during the last election after several parties vowed to improve the living conditions in her community.
She said after five years, not much has improved.
Mahoka added she has no interest in making her mark on 7 May.
"There's no use in voting for empty promises. They told us we were going to stay here for six months. But it's been six or seven years. It's been too long."
Most political party' voter campaigns and rallies ended at the weekend.
