The City of Cape Town says the process of rezoning in the Imizamo Yethu informal settlement in Hout Bay will resume on Monday.

This after two groups reached a peace deal at the weekend.

The agreement follows widespread violence in which houses, an African National Congress (ANC) office and business containers were set alight.

Mayoral spokesperson Zara Nicholson says the agreement will allow for the smooth implementation of services like water and electricity.

“The two groups of leaders met along with city political leaders, city officials, and senior members of the South African Police Service (SAPS) at the Hout Bay Fire Station. The two community leader groups came to an agreement in which the one group was updated about the super-blocking project and they agreed to engage the community at large to put an end to the violence so that the project can continue. The violence which flared up again this past week caused a delay in the super-blocking project, with contractors being pulled off site as their lives and equipment were in danger.”
