Affordable housing in the Cape Town CBD promises to be a key electioneering point in the impending local government election. The Good Party fired a salvo last week when mayoral candidate Brett Herron accused the DA-run Cape Town Council of keeping people of colour out of the CBD, when it scuttled plans for affordable housing in Salt River.
