CAPE TOWN – Western Cape Human Settlements MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela will visit the Parkwood community on Tuesday following violent protests over housing.

A group of residents staged a symbolic land invasion over the weekend.

They occupied vacant land, marking out areas in protest against the slow pace of housing development.

Some roads were closed on Monday, following more flare-ups in the area.

Recently, protests about land and housing also erupted in Vrygrond, Hermanus and Mitchells Plain in the Western Cape.
