WATCH: Plaatfontein residents look to DA for change

07 July, 04:49 PM

Plaatfontein is an informal settlement on the R31 between Kimberley and Barkly West in the Northern Cape.

Some members of this community live in tents. Several of the modest homes have broken windows, and cold concrete floors.

There is little in the way of amenities. 

However, workers were tarring a road leading into the settlement when News24 visited in early July.

Some residents say they are looking to the Democratic Alliance (DA) to bring change.

In the 2011 municipal elections the municipality was won by an African National Congress (ANC) majority.

Watch for more.
