City of Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba’s plan to clean up the city has sparked mixed reactions.

This after hundreds of people were left homeless on the streets of Johannesburg due to evictions from hazardous and dilapidated buildings in the city.  

Socio-Economic Rights Institute representative, Nomzamo Zondo, argues that according to the court ruling the city has to provide  housing for people who were evicted from the hijacked buildings.

On other hand, Mashaba maintains that he will only cater for South African citizens not for the foreigners.
