Ahmed Kathrada House
The Province disconnected the water and electricity at Ahmed Kathrada House. The National Department of Public Works has also cut off services at Irene Grootboom House. They want to build an office block there. We visited the Civic Centre to ask to get reconnected because it’s the City’s obligation to reconnect basic services.We need water and electricity to wash, to eat and to keep safe at night. The City said they would give us an answer by Friday.

Irene Grootboom House
[WATCH] We have read the newspapers that the National Department of Transport & Public Works (DTPW) wants to renovate this 104 Darling Street building and put offices, while our people have nowhere else to go. We have been writing letters & going to DTPW to seek for help, we pleaded with them to renovate the build and provide basic services. Till this day they have not responded, in 2017 the third floor of the building caught fire, DTPW never assisted. Today we took it upon ourselves to clean the building and all we ask from you DTPW is to provide basic services.
