Mayoral high tea

District 6 Working Committee chairperson Shahied Ajam speaks at the mayoral high tea.

Mayor Dan Plato told former District 6 residents that he wants to see them get both justice and their land back. He was speaking at a high tea he hosted for them at the civic centre’s banquet hall on Wednesday September 4. He said the community suffered a great injustice during the forced removals under apartheid. “The time for change is now,” said Mr Plato. One of the claimants, Faizel Davis said: “My wife was in a coma, and I believe that she only got out of it when she heard that she will be getting her house.”
