Can tell them there is space in Catherine Dodge's house

Don't be silly. She needs to virtue signal, not look after the homeless. I have challenged many virtue signallers to take the homeless they wring their hands about into their homes if they are so concerned about them. Not one has. It's all about assuaging the guilt they feel for being able to live comfortably.

A trifecta of other locals (and there are plenty others). No protests.
All it takes is nice clothes and a shiny car.

Homeless evicted​



Temporary relief secured for Cape Town’s homeless residents​


Cape Town - Homeless people whose belongings were impounded by the City’s law enforcement officers at Tent City next to the Green Point Tennis Club have received a reprieve.

Some of their confiscated goods were returned while others complained that their life-supporting antiretroviral drugs, asylum-seeking papers and artwork were still missing.
The move followed an agreement reached by legal counsel for the affected homeless people and the City of Cape Town.
However, a draft order by the Western Cape High Court acknowledged that the agreement would not resolve the dispute between the parties and the matter would be argued in court on Tuesday.
On Friday a heavy law enforcement presence and a private security tactical response vehicle kept watch over the group of homeless people at the Green Point Tennis Club and instructed them not to put up the returned tents.

City of Cape Town ordered to return some items to 'Tent City' homeless in Green Point​


Cape Town - After mounting pressure from the public and an urgent application in the Western Cape High Court, the City has returned some of the belongings it confiscated from the homeless in Green Point.
On Monday last week, the City’s law enforcement officers demolished tents housing more than 20 homeless people on vacant land next to the Green Point Tennis Club called “Tent City”, and confiscated their belongings.
Organisations representing the homeless approached the high court for an order compelling the City to return the tents and other dwelling materials.
A draft order by the court on Friday acknowledged that the agreement would not resolve the dispute between the parties, and the matter would be argued tomorrow.
