District Six land claimants restitution plan set to begin


Guest : Shahied Ajam | Chairperson at District Six Working Committee |

It’s all systems go for the first phase of the redevelopment of District Six.
A plan for the area was finally unanimously agreed upon by District Six land claimants
and Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development Thoko Didiza. You’ll
no doubt remember her plan submitted in December as ordered by the court.
On Saturday hundreds of District Six land claimants gathered at the Castle of
GoodHope to hear the details of the government's roadmap to finally get them back
home after decades of forced removals from the slopes of Table Mountain.
The plan includes details for the new layout for the redevelopment, including 954
housing units to be allocated to individual claimants. It also includes costing and
funding and timeframes.
