    LAILA MAJIET

    BO-KAAP residents are unhappywith the squatter camp in Mili-tary Road, but those staying inthe informal settlement say theyfeel neglected when it comes tobasic service delivery.

    Following a two-day clean-up op-eration by the City last week, a con-cerned Bo-Kaap resident informedPeoples Post of the high pile of dirtaccumulating outside the squattercamp next to Vista High School.

    Farouk Waggie who stays in LionStreet says: There is a house adja-cent to the shacks where a familyof four was staying. They wereserved with an eviction order to va-cate the house, and they left thepremises in April.

    Now over 10 vagrants from out-side the area stay in the house. We,the residents, dont want a squattercamp in our area.

    Waggie says the problem has per-sisted for the last three years. Thearea gets cleaned today and tomor-row they start dumping again, headds.

    However, those living in the in-formal settlement at the foot of Mili-tary Road counter they have no oth-er options as they have not beenprovided with bins, toilets or run-ning water.

    The council land between Mili-tary Road and Lion Street is alsomainly used as a dumping site.

    But the squatters say the dirt wasthere long before they arrived.

    Nazeem Gamiet (38) is unem-ployed and has been staying at thesettlement for three years. He sayshe has stayed in Bo-Kaap all his life.

    It is not only our rubbish. Thepeople who lived here before start-ed dumping on the border of thesquatter camp and we followed suit.I am happy they have taken the dirtaway and we as a community mustensure that the area remainsclean.

    John Witbooi (64) is an unem-ployed man who has been living inthe settlement for the last 20 years.

    He says: I feel terribly bad be-cause the government is yet to giveus basic services like water and toi-lets. I am not sure how much longerthey expect us to wait. It is not nicefor the women or the children liv-ing here to have to use the bush asa toilet, but we have no otherchoice.

    Katriena Wagenaar (32) has threechildren. Her youngest was born atthe squatter camp.

    She has lived there for nine years,and says she wants better for herchildren.

    It is not nice to have to raise mychildren in this environment. Two

    of my children attend ScotcheskloofPrimary School and I dont wantthem to grow up into the same cir-cumstances in which I find myself.

    Cleaning staff who were on siteon Wednesday say the dirt they re-moved seems like it has been therefor a very long time.

    Saadiqah Pascoe says it was ahorrible experience having to cleanup after people who defecatedwhere they found an open space.

    It was horrible. We found paintcontainers which people had usedto defecate in. Old clothing wasstrewn on the side of the road in be-tween the dirt. This was the first

    time I have cleaned up this area andit looks like a lot of the dirt is oldrubbish that had been buried withsoil.

    Plants have even grown over thedirt,she says.

    The Bo-Kaap Civic AssociationsOsman Shaboodien says the squat-ter camp is a symptom of a biggerproblem a lack of housing.

    There is no control over thesquatter camp either. People set upshop and no one controls this. Be-cause the window period in whichto evict squatters is so short, theproblem persists.

    The Bo-Kaap Neighbourhood

    Watch says the informal settlementis often used as an escape route forcriminals who lurk in the area.

    Chairperson Fahim Omar says:There has been an increase incriminal activity in the area sincethe occupants of the house on thefarm were evicted and othersmoved in.

    Richard Bosman, the director ofthe Citys safety and security de-partment says: The Citys Dis-placed Peoples Unit, with the as-sistance of other enforcement agen-cies and the Social DevelopmentDepartment, will continue to workin the area daily to address the va-grancy issues.

    No control over squatters

    Dear reader,

    Like the thousands of hopefuls who en-ter Idols each year, most of us believewere stars. And why not?

    After all, each of us has an interestinglife story to tell and if movies were madeof these, we would all be stars.

    Real life tales aside, theres nothingmore powerful than having a dream, or inthe case of most Idols contestants whoclearly cant carry a tune, more misguid-ed. Despite being told in the most candidmanner by the shows
