Various high level role players will be meeting with community leaders of Zwelihle in Hermanus this evening in an effort to diffuse a possible volatile situation in the Overstrand town this week.
The Zwelihle Renewal activist group, who also led
a two week violent protest a year ago over housing that crippled the town economically, will this week target businesses who they say are not employing locals.
Local business owners have however indicated that they will not be intimidated.
Acting Mayor, Elnora Gillion, says the Western Cape Minister of Human Settlements, the Constituency head for the Overstrand and herself will be meeting with community leaders to discuss housing issues and other matters.
"We are addressing the issues regarding the houses, that was
actually the matter.
But now the possible strike, its labour issues with businesses.
We will have the speaker of province, he is also our constituency head and we will also have the minister of Human Settlements, Tertius Simmers."
