Woodstock eviction protests could continue
28 families have been given eviction notices, saying they must vacate their homes by 9 September.
CAPE TOWN - Protests against the planned eviction of 28 families in Woodstock look set to continue.
Residents have been given eviction notices, saying they must vacate their homes by 9 September.
Yesterday dozens of people joined the families as they protested against the evictions.
The Woodstock Hub's Jacques van Embden says, "We've kept the power connected during this process and we've been paying for all the utilities. We haven't got a recover rental from them."
Resident Charnell Commando says there has been no word on the families receiving accommodation.
"We've gone to the civic centre and all of us are on the data base, but when we go there they'll say there's a backlog and we need to wait. This is a matter of urgency as there are 28 families involved here."
