Dunoon protesters hand over memorandum to City of CT
Hundreds of protesters, together with the EFF, demonstrated in front of the CT Civic Centre.
CAPE TOWN - A memorandum airing the Dunoon community's grievances has been handed over to the City of Cape Town.
This comes after a violent protest, which erupted late last night in the township, evolved into a demonstration in front of the Cape Town Civic Centre.
Hundreds of Dunoon residents have been joined by Economic Freedom Fighters(EFF) in their demonstration in front of the civic centre.
Protesters from the community have been demonstrating since late last night.
The EFF's Tlhabanelo Diholo says residents called on the party to help them in their plight.
"People are landless and they've been landless for so many years. They've come to the mayor of this city and she is not responding to their grievances. They've approached the counsellor, who is not interested in listening."
The city's Community facilitator Elgan Fortune has received the group's memorandum listing their grievances, which includes a lack of housing in the area, on behalf of the mayor.

Community leader Dolly Vinqeshe says residents are frustrated.
"We are lacking houses and the community is over-populated. As you can see, each and every day there is a blocked drain and each and every day there are no playgrounds for our children."
