The community of Kliphuewel have had enough of empty promises. They have been living in shacks for more than 30 years and have been pleading with the Cape Town municipality for their most basic needs; housing, electricity, transport, clinics and schools. The only time political party leaders come to Klipheuwel is when the elections are due; they make false promises and bribe them with food. The community have had enough and are taking their land back with or without the government’s permission.
