Please take note of a planned march taking place tomorrow, 27 July 2023, between 10:00 and 14:00.
The march will start at the Sportsground in Zwelihle and head towards Swartdam Road, R43/Main Road and finish in front of the Municipality’s Head Office in Harmony Lane, Hermanus at 12:00. One lane road closures can be expected along the route and traffic will be redirected by Traffic Services.
Operation Dudula organisers wish to hand a memorandum to the Overstrand Executive Mayor regarding matters relating to service delivery, as it relates to access to water, electricity and land availability.
SAPS and the Public Order Police and other Law Enforcement Agencies are working closely together to minimise any disruption as it will be business as usual in town.
We also want to caution against the spreading of messages of fear, intimidation or inflammatory statements that could incite violence. Community members have the right to protest peacefully, provided it is done in an orderly manner.
Any intimidation or suspicious activity can be reported to SAPS (028 313 5300) or Overstrand Municipality’s Protection Services Emergency Control Room (028 312 2400).
