CapeTown Residents started this petition to City of Cape Town Mayor -Dan Plato; Western Cape Premier -Alan Winde

Cape Town's city streets and neighbourhoods have become besieged by the encampment of vagrants.


Sidewalks and open spaces around the City have become permanent camps, presenting health and social issues including the open and public use of drugs and alcohol; defecation in public spaces; increased crime levels in neighbourhoods due to opportunistic and petty theft from property.


The City has by-laws which deal with these issues; which it is failing to enforce due to the findings of a legal case brought against the City.


It is a Constitutional Requirement that Local Government provide for the health and safety of its residents and the current situation is endangering the health and the safety of the residents of Cape Town. It is incumbent upon the City to find a solution to this issue through the promulgation of appropriate and enforceable by-laws or by fighting the findings of the court against them.


Please sign this petition to indicate your concern and support in calling for the DA run City of Cape Town to account to residents in this matter and to urgently address this issue.
