Hundreds of people living in Site C Khayelitsha have been affected by flooding caused by winter weather.

Brael Gcaba, chairperson of a Site C street committee, says Zola and CCT sections of Site C are affected. He said this week’s weather left many houses flooded with water, and people are using bricks and crates to make paths into their homes.

South African Social Services (SASA) and Disaster Management are supporting people who have been affected badly, and are handing out blankets, soup and bread.
