Johannesburg - The City of Cape Town and the SA Property Owners' Association (Sapoa) on Tuesday met to back the fight against racism in the city.

"The city is pleased that Sapoa has heeded our call and will be supporting the Inclusive City campaign where we seek to address issues of alleged racism and where we educate people on their rights and how to activate those rights," the two parties said in a joint statement.

Mayor Patricia de Lille announced the Inclusive City campaign on Saturday, Human Rights Day. It is aimed at creating public platforms to discuss what makes some residents feel excluded and others entitled.

Sapoa chairperson Refqah Fataar Ho-Yee said its members had to abide by a code of conduct.

"Where there are incidents reported to us, we will investigate and take action if necessary. We will deal with each and every complaint, no matter how small, and ensure that the relevant body investigates."
