The Cape Town-leg of the national shutdown has seen demonstrators heading to the seats of local, provincial, and national governments.

The demonstration first headed to the City of Cape Town’s offices, where Mayor Geordin Hill-Lewis received their memorandum of demands.

The shutdown, which was organised by labour federations, Cosatu and Saftu, is aimed at highlighting the various forms of government’s failures to fix the country’s economy.

But organisations like the Housing Assembly, say that the City is failing to enforce policies that provides greater access to economic opportunities.

The group’s secretary, Stephen Maciko has accused the Democratic Alliance and the City of misleading the public, and just signing memoranda with no action.
