Thats what’s going down today, my friends, as the municipality has given the go-ahead for the ANC’s Cape Town CBD protest march. You can imagine how Helen Zille feels about this..
According to EWN:
Law enforcement officials will saturate the Cape Town City Centre ahead of a protest march being led by the African National Congress (ANC) today.
Scores of informal settlement residents are expected to descend on the CBD this morning.
They plan to march to the offices of Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille and Provincial Premier Helen Zille, to raise their grievances over housing and service delivery issues.
Late last year, a similar planned march in the city turned violent.
And with regards to the free transport, Helen Zille is not too pleased:
Cosatu’s provincial leader Tony Ehrenreich seemed to confirm this when he tweeted on Tuesday evening that “Cosatu pays for transport from Metrorail like DA pays for their march transport [sic]”.
Western Cape Premier Helen Zille said it was a disgrace that the marchers were getting free transport.
The ANC is expected to hand over a memorandum to Zille and Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille.
A similar march in October last year turned violent when protesters started looting.
