South Africa's abandoned buildings: Gov't wants to end unlawful occupations

  • čas přidán 16. 09. 2023
  • Seventy people died last month in South Africa after an abandoned building caught fire.
    The five-storey building in Johannesburg had been taken over by homeless and vulnerable people who were forced to pay rent to criminal gangs.
    President Cyril Ramaphosa says the criminal groups need to be rooted out.

    They are virtually neglecting it.

    Yes. A bloated civil service that drains the fiscus.

    Probably she should have 6 children more. That might help

    You don’t talk about how that inequality came about.

      Nearly 30 years of experimentation with socialism.
      Inner City Joburg sure didn’t look like this in apartheid

      ​@Marius StemmetI now live the Western Cape but was born and brought up IN the Durban area . Been many times to Joburg in the early 90s on business . So I know what these cities looked like. I have been to both Joburg and Durban recently and I must say that it's sad what has happened in just 30 years. You can't use excuses like inequality, apartheid and whatever else to destroy what you inherited. Rather take it and improve on it. But sadly some people only know how to destroy but never build. I visited a KZN SOUTH COAST town where I was born. Those houses that Indians once lived in are all dilapidated now. One commercial section of the town same.
