When asked why they don’t go to a shelter where they can sleep in a warm bed and have a roof over their heads, they told TygerBurger that they need to pay for a bed and they don’t always have enough money. “Ouma”, as the other vagrants call her, says there’s no point going to a shelter because you have to leave with all your belongings in the morning. “We might be living outside, but we keep our living space spotless and do not bother anyone,” says Ouma.

Mayco member for safety and security at the City of Cape Town, JP Smith, says the City’s Street People Reintegration Unit has continued efforts in maintaining the area. “Unfortunately, we have no control over the movement and behaviour of homeless, less fortunate individuals who visit the area. These individuals have constitutionally enshrined rights to freedom of movement,” says Smith.

According to Smith, the Social Development and Early Childhood Development Department will continue with efforts to engage and attempt to relocate the homeless.
