On my last day out in cape town , i set out out to visit the people of #Mandelapark. Whilst the rest of cape town bath in the sun and beaches just a stones throw away from one of cape town's pride beaches the people of izamyethu suffered a series of fire related disasters.

Hout Bay Civic Association secretary Roscoe Jacobs said people who "lost everything" a month ago had now lost it all again.

The area saw one person die and almost 1 300 residents left homeless after a fire broke out in the Mandela Park area situated in the Imizamo Yethu settlement.

Jacobs said that because the area was so highly populated, there was a constant fire risk.
