The delivery of affordable housing in Cape Town has been tedious and in some instances non-existent. Ordinary citizens are often left behind as spheres of government are caught in a football match over what land should be used for these developments.
In recent years, housing activists have pushed for certain golf courses to be used as spaces for social housing development. But this has been rejected.
Added to this is the housing backlog, which in 2019 is said to have stood at 365 000. These are said to be families that qualify for fully state-subsidised homes.
Amid calls for golf courses to be turned into spaces for shelter, there is concern about the limited access and state of sporting facilities in parts of Cape Town, particularly those on the Cape Flats.
How do parties contesting the election plan to deliver affordable housing, strengthen the fight against crime and improve sporting facilities?
