COSATU Western Cape slams the DA`s restructuring gimmick

17 January 2017

The Mayor of Cape Town has again shifted the chairs on a sinking Titanic, by doing a reshuffle without making real improvements. The Cape Flats is experiencing deepening crisis but the Mayor has no plan to address the trouble of these communities.
