Strandfontein residents against moving 2000 people into the area

We as residents are against this movement. We were never consulted and request these 2000 people be moved into the leafy suburbs, to the likes of Constantia where the COCT will act more responsive in "Operation cleanup" once the countrywide lockdown is over.
