    TAURIQ HASSEN

    CORNWALL Street in Woodstock was a

    scene of confusion and anger when seven

    familieswere evicted fromablockof flats.

    On Wednesday morning, tenants were

    asked to pack their belongings and vacate

    their flats, as the block is scheduled for demo-

    lition.

    Evicted tenant Abduraghman Ismail spoke

    of his frustration to Peoples Post while keep-

    ing an eye onhis belongings on the pavement.

    This cannot be right. We have human

    rights, but this is really not human at all,

    Ismail fumes.

    He and his family refused to move from

    their flat after receiving an eviction notice

    the Friday before. But they were threatened

    by the sheriff of the court.

    Witha tear about to fall, he says: Ifmy fam-

    ily is to live on the streets, I could not afford

    to be arrested because they will need me.

    What are we going to do and where are we

    going to live?

    When Peoples Post went to the area, bang-

    ing noises could be heard from inside the

    block of flats.

    Men carted personal belongings to nearby

    houses. Neighbours and curious onlookers

    gathered around, commiserating with the

    evicted tenants.

    JuleigaMagerman, a tenant in theblock for

    almost 22 years, scrambled to collect the per-

    sonal effects from her home. She had no clue

    where her family would go.

    Surrounded by her children, Magerman

    says: This happened all of a sudden and I had

    no chance to really figure outwhat I amgoing

    to do. But I have no choice and I will have

    to sleep on the street with my family.

    Shahied Meisenheimer, who has been liv-

    ing in the flat for the past four years, stood

    stunned as he watched his flat being cleared

    out.

    When the eviction notice arrived, Meisen-

    heimer says he rushed to seeking legal ad-

    vice. Whenwe arrived at the Legal Aid, they

    just laughed at us and the more we asked for

    help, the more they kept turning us away.

    Meisenheimer started accepting his fate,

    preparing to spend the night in his blue car

    outside his flat, but still struggled to come to

    terms with the eviction.

    I still cant believe this is happening.

    These people do not have a heart, because

    theyre evicting us in Ramadan, he says.

    According to the tenants, notice was re-

    ceived in 2009 when talk of a court order sur-

    faced.

    However, tenants highlighted that nothing

    had been put on paper since and talks of ei-

    ther an eviction or court order had died out.

    Ismail says: We were suddenly asked to

    leave and they gave us about three days to

    pack our things and find an alternative place

    to live, which cannot be right.

    Owner of the property, Fatima Gaibie, be-

    lieves she has given the tenants enough time

    to find alternative accommodation.

    She adds that a two-year notice period had

    been given and says she cannot understand

    why the eviction is so shocking.

    Gaibie says: I gave them enough time.

    They have been living there for nothing and

    two years is more than enough time.

    The building is set to be demolished and ap-

    provals have already been granted by coun-

    cil, Gaibie confirms.

    She says: That building is no good and is

    already falling apart. It must be thrown

    down.

    What are we going to do?

    Dear reader,

    National Womens Day, Thursday 9

    August, is approached by most with

    mixed feelings.

    On the one hand,we have cause for cel-

    ebration when we remember the tri-

    umphs of women over the past decades,

    most notably 9 August 1956 when more

    than 20 000 women of diverse cultures

    fearlessly protested proposed pass laws

    by marching on the Union Buildings in

    Pretoria.

    Women have deservedly assumed

    their place in the business, political and

    sporting arenas. Were the quintessen-

    tial multi-taskers, adeptly juggling our

    various roles careers, motherhood,

    marriage, community work...

    According to the Inter-Parliamentary

    Union and UN Women, there are cur-

    rently 17 countries with women as head

    of government, head of state or both.

    Globally, Thursdaywillmark the 101st

    International Womens Day and abroad

    and locally, thousands of events are be-

    ing planned.

    With all the awareness and altruistic

    efforts by government and organisations

    committed to women empowerment, as

    well as the power wielded by women to-

    day, it is the greatest irony that as many

    women are victims of abuse and vio-

    lence.

    However, statistics on violence

    against women in South Africa is not re-

    liable, because many cases go unreport-

    ed. This is due to a number of factors,

    such as stigma, financial instability, fear

    of repercussions from abusive partners,

    a lack of informat
