    NEW HORIZONS

    Elderly living in fear

    CHEVON BOOYSEN

    @ChevonBooysen

    T

    heir beloved neighbourhood has now

    turned into something like a prison.

    These are the words of a group of eld-

    erly residents living in Shoebill Court, New

    Horizons.

    Residents whomoved into the housing de-

    velopment about three years ago say they

    fear for their safety in the area as gang activ-

    ity has escalated since they moved in.

    One resident, who did not want to be

    named out of fear of victimisation, says they

    have been living in fear for too long.

    It really is sad to live in a placewhere one

    cant really be free. The name should say a

    lot New Horizons. But when I moved in

    here, it was exactly the opposite, the con-

    cerned resident says.

    The resident says the frustration stems

    from alleged gang activity in the court.

    At the moment the 6 Bops gang is operat-

    ing here. They even call our court the Four

    Corners.

    Another resident says they have been ver-

    bally abused by unsavoury elements hang-

    ing around a few homes in the court.

    Whenwe tried to reprimand these people

    involved with the gang, we were met with

    disrespect and got sworn at. Its like we

    should just shut our mouths and allow this

    to happen, the resident says.

    Mychildrens schoolwork is being affect-

    ed by these activities in the area. They (the

    gangs) are a nuisance when they make a

    noise at all hours of the day and night, the

    resident complains.

    The residents say they have already

    joined forces with the City of Cape Town to

    have this issue addressed and reported the

    situation to the police.

    After we set up petitions and asked to

    meet with themayor to highlight our dissat-

    isfaction, nothing has been done. This is re-

    ally a cry for help because we are being ter-

    rorised by gang activity and drug peddling

    every day, the residents say.

    Mayco member for human settlements,

    Benedicta van Minnen, says the properties

    pointed out in an enquiry relating to the ac-

    tivities in the court, are privately owned

    homes. The mentioned properties are not

    rental stock. Its Breaking New Ground

    (BNG)units thatwerehanded over to benefi-

    ciaries for private ownership. As with all

    property owners, beneficiaries of the BNG

    Housing Project are responsible for any

    maintenance and the safeguarding of their

    houses as well as ensuring that no illegal ac-

    tivity or antisocial behaviour occurs on

    their premises, Van Minnen says.

    She adds the RDP houses have a specific

    title deed condition that does not allow bene-

    ficiaries to sell their homes within the first

    eight years of having received their proper-

    ty.

    Van Minnen says the Citys Housing Allo-

    cations Policy states approved beneficiaries

    shall not sublet thepropertyuntil the trans-

    fer of the property has been registered.

    If in breach, the City reserves the

    right to allocate and transfer the prop-

    erty to the next applicant on the data-

    base or to the person in occupation.

    The City, therefore, strongly discoura-

    ges the letting out of anRDPhouse that

    has been received by a beneficiary.

    If a person is found in contraven-

    tion of the Allocation Policy, for exam-

    ple subletting the property before it is

    transferred into their name, the City

    has the right to reclaim the property

    and allocate and transfer it to the next

    qualifyingapplicant on theCitys data-

    base, Van Minnen explains.

    She further adds that a BNG benefi-

    ciary isnot prevented fromrentingout

    their home after the transfer of the

    property has taken place.

    However, the City strongly advises

    against this and reserves the right to

    reallocate the units if the transfer has

    not yet taken place. The City is obliged

    to enforce its policy and will investi-

    gate anycontraventions in this regard.

    In order to do so, the City will need the

    community to provide the names of

    beneficiaries who are suspected of en-

    gaging in such affairs.

    Grassy Park police spokesperson

    Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith

    says they can confirm that regular

    searches are done at Shoebill Court.
