What is gentrification and how is this global phenomenon affecting our local community in Muizenberg?
In this episode we chat about our Muizenberg water task team and developments taking place specifically in identifying people at risk who would need water if Day Zero arrives.
We also chat to Etienne who is from France, about the worldwide phenomenon of gentrification and its impact on Muizenberg. With the renewal and rejuvenation of a suburb property prices and rentals skyrocket forcing out residents who don’t have the means to pay higher prices. This marginalisation pushes people to the fringes of a community. Unfortunately it’s a fact of life but we look at ways to stop the break up of a community through prosperity and renewal.
We also take a look at some of the political changes that have taken place over the last week and discuss how it affects us at a local level.
