Reclaim the City activists begin building homes in Green Point, Cape Town, on a piece of land they say was promised to them by deputy mayor Ian Nielson.
Activist Nkosikhona Swartbooi says they are at the Green Point bowling green to hold Neilson accountable to a promise he made in 2018.
The groups say they are no longer waiting for the government. They have started to lay down the foundations of a house on the green.
“We’re here to say in 2018 Ian Neilson made a commitment that this piece of land, when the lease comes to an end, which was on 30 April, that they will build affordable houses.”
