As land invasions continue in Cinderella Park, residents have raised concerns about the living conditions they face in the informal settlement.It does not have any sanitation infrastructure and the area is being used as a dumping site, the residents claim.Cynthia Forthin said she had seen the number of informal dwellers growing over the years and the living conditions were getting worse. “This makes me upset because there is money to build houses for these people. Why do we have councillors if they are not going to do their work? These people are living with children and people are just dumping everywhere. Children will get sick here,” she said.One of the informal dwellers, Phindile Ndlovu, said she had been staying in the area since 2015.Although she was living under difficult conditions, she had no other choice.“I am unemployed and I cannot afford rent or a decent house somewhere else. I once applied for an RDP house but did not receive it so I have to stick it out.“Sometimes it gets really difficult but there is no other choice. We do not have water or electricity. Sometimes houses catch alight because of candles,” she said.Ndlovu said she was relying on part-time jobs to put bread on the table.“My parents passed away a long time ago and I am looking after my siblings. All of us are unemployed. I have sent some of my siblings to relatives because I cannot manage,” she said.Ward councillor Mike Amod did not answer his phone nor respond to an SMS query sent to him.
