Residents in Wetton tried to chase away City of Cape Town officials on Friday morning who had been trying to install a Water Management Device (WMD) at a resident’s property in Lydia Avenue.

A gathering with expressive locals continued even though the police and the local councillor were brought in.

Ward 63 councillor Monty Oliver says the owners of the house were not home at the of the incident but the issue was resolved soon after. “There was no fight, although some residents expressed themselves. After two hours a new WMD was installed and the water was set at 800 litres for 16 residents for the weekend.”
