Dear City of Cape Town

You claim you are a city that works for all. Let’s test this myth.

1. Philippi has the highest unemployment rate in all of CapeTown.
2. Philippi has the highest crime rates.
3. Highest murder rate.
4. Highest number of hijecking.
5. 2 high school only
6. Three 4 primary schools “yet they want to know why there are so many drop outs”.
7. Zero fuels station.
8. Zero shopping mall.
9. Zero police station.
10. Zero law enforcement officers.
11. Zero ATM basic ATM.
————————————————————————
Sporting facilities
12. Browns farm multipurpose facility. (Only lasted for 18 months) city wanted to turn our facility to water retention point. 15 years later nothing ever happened.

13. Masivuke field. Even Nelson Mandela visited this field. It was left unattended since 1990. City of Cape Town wants to turn this field to water retention point.

14. Field next to it in Sheffield road. Three young girls have been found dead in that field over in the last 4 years. City of Cape Town says this is a water retention point and they can not look after it.

15. Philippi stadium built in 2010. Stadium was only used the fire five years. Since then the stadium has been a white elephant till vandalized.

16. Our last hope, Browns farm field. As shown below. For the last four years we have been to countless number of meetings with city officials. We have even drove to the field at 2am just to provide security to the field. Chasing criminals at night. We have been promised that the field will be fixed till today nothing. Every meeting its something new. If not PO being not approved, it’s financial calendars ending. Our last hope to promote sports in the township are coming to an end thanks to the City that works for you.

Even the Major has never been to Philippi but visit Lentegeur countless number of times. The road to that township passes through our township. The difference between the two one is a black African township the other is not.
