More than 120 residents of Gympie Street in Woodstock, have been without water for the past three days, after the City of Cape Town sent workers, accompanied by SAPS and Metro Police Members, to disconnect the water supply and remove water meters.
Willie Heyn, chairperson of the Gympie Street residents committee, says that those living in Gympie Street include several disabled people, babies, and people living with HIV, who have been unable to take their medication properly.
Robert MacDonald, spokesperson for the mayor’s office, could not be reached for comment.
