The Department of Human Settlements Condemns Parkwood Protest

21 May 2018

The Department of Human Settlements strongly condemns the violent protest which erupted in Parkwood this morning.

While we respect the people’s right to protest, violence and destruction cannot be tolerated.

Human Settlements Minister, Bonginkosi Madikizela yesterday received a memorandum of grievances from Parkwood Councillor, Mr William Akim. This morning, the Minister engaged the leadership of the area and it was agreed that a meeting to help find solutions for Parkwood be held on Tuesday 22 May 2018.

We urge the community to remain calm.  The government cannot condone lawlessness.
