A private security company operating at Cape Town’s Clifton Fourth Beach has raised the…

A private security company operating at Cape Town’s Clifton Fourth Beach has raised the ire of beachgoers and vendors alike. Beachgoers were allegedly instructed to leave the beach on Sunday evening. A group of picnickers claim the beach was cleared of people, with security guards saying it closes at eight-o’-clock at night. Meanwhile, the City of Cape Town says the company does not have the powers to close beaches or to restrict access. Beachgoer, Fatima Shabodien, who was part of the group, says they felt prejudiced: “The real issue is in whose interest are they acting and on whose instruction. How is it possible that in our country 24 years into post-apartheid South Africa, a private security company has the right to tell us we don’t have access to a public beach? We’ve been here before, we waged a struggle to have access to beaches, we were led by Achbishop Desmond Tutu under the slogan; All Gods beaches for all Gods people; so we back 24 years later, and we have to wage the same struggles. We can’t let it happen, it shouldn’t be allowed. We have won this struggle before.” The security company has not yet responded to an interview request from SABC News.

  1. A beach is not an individuals property and everyone should have access to it. If you want a private beach, buy an island.

  2. No racism here. Simply the wealthy wanting to exclude we the people who they deem les worthy to share that beach.

  3. We can’t allow this Private Racist Security Company to come and Dictate to us our Parents fought for this Equality.
