ANC Provincial Secretary, Faiez Jacobs, has called for a sunset protest at all beaches in the Western Cape. This, after a private security company allegedly enforced by-laws at Clifton Beach in the Cape Peninsula where members of the public including his family were allegedly put off the beach at sunset. The security company apparently assumed cleaning duties after City Law Enforcement personnel had left the beach and instructed people to leave. Jacobs says city authorities could have prevented this from happening: “It’s unacceptable that in this City of Cape Town you still have protection of privilege. We as comrades are going come together and see that we going to implement, what Tutu used to have that “all God’s beaches for all God’s people” there was a defiance campaign in 1989 and I think it’s appropriate that we must ensure that our beaches remain open to all our people.” Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security, JP Smith, says it is unfortunate that a private security company had allegedly enforced by-laws on Clifton beach. Smith says they are talking to all parties involved to try and remedy the situation.
