Containing the situation

■ On Monday May 22, ward councillor Roberto Quintas, members of the Imizamo Yethu housing steering committee and representatives of the City’s Transport and Urban Development Authority (TDA) met with business owners whose containers have been hampering progress on the housing project on Site 2. Mr Quintas said while four business owners refused to move their containers, engagement with others was productive. “It was a friendly advisory meeting to inform these business owners that they would have 14 days to find alternative accommodation in IY. The City will be assisting legal licensed operators in this regard,” he said. “In the event of the containers not being moved within the time frame, Law Enforcement will come onto the site and they will be impounded and the owners will have to pay a fine.”
