The widely criticised Formula E event will not take place next year.
The organisers have told the hosting City of Cape Town, that this is due to the uncertainty of the country’s lockdown regulations.
It’s now been set for 2023.
The event has drawn criticism for the more than R40 million that will be spent on the road upgrades needed to accommodate the race.
But Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith says that the upgrades will go ahead, and are necessary for the Green Point precinct.
He says that it needs a re-fresh, because of all the events that run through the area.
Meanwhile the Collective Action and Racial Equity (CARE) movement’s, Sindisa Monakali says that the money spent on these upgrades are slap in the face to people who have been living in squalor for decades.
