In response to Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille, Mzonke Poni of Abahlali baseMjondolo stresses that dialogue around housing, justice and a dignified existence can never be a matter of mere stage-managed engagement.

These kinds of attacks to our comrades are completely unacceptable, we know this is not the first time for our comrades to be attacked, as much as previously they were attacked by group of unknown people but the current attacks at Kennedy road clarifies that the ANC had been behind these attacks with a view to push our strong comrades out of mobilized communities so that they can reclaim the leadership of those communities.
