The City of Cape Town’s Law Enforcement agency is taking action against the illegal squatters along Viking Way. The Law Enforcement satellite station has been in effect as of 1 February 2017.
On Monday 06 February, Law Enforcement’s management have taken their stance a step further by placing a semi-permanent structure on the ground, this being in the form of a container, which will be used as an Operations Centre. The idea is to create more awareness amongst the illegal squatters, showing that the City is taking this matter seriously. In the time that the satellite station has been placed alongside the squatters, Law Enforcement has shut down 2 illegal shebeen that has been operating there for many years. Social development are also busy doing assessments.
The City, along with Law Enforcement and the ECID will continue to monitor the area and keep companies updated on any future developments.
