The national government, provincial government, Overstrand municipality, and the Zwelihle committee are planning to hold a workshop on 5 May to discuss land issues in Hermanus. Community leader Theron Mqhu said Minister of Human Settlements for the Western Cape Bonginkosi Madikizela held a meeting with national government on 17 April. According to Mqhu, Madikizela will return to Zwelihle on 15 May.
