Our day will start at the brightly colored community called Bo-kaap. It is one of the oldest townships in Cape town and also the only one that escaped the wrath of the forced removals by the apartheid government. Here we will outline a history of more than 200 years to present before we head out to district 6.A a former multi racial community that was razed to the ground by the apartheid government.
District 6
District 6 was the 6th municipal district of Cape Town. A multi racial community at the foot of the world famous flat top Table Mountain. From 1964 to 1984, subject to the group areas act of the Apartheid government. District 6 was declared a white only area therefore, all none white citizens had to be evicted and taken to the unwanted land of Cape Town in the cape flats. All houses were demolished with government's plan to turn district 6 into an affluent suburb. Over 50 years after the first removals, none of the government proposed affluent suburb was built and most of District 6 still lay fallow. A tour of this area and a local memorial museum gives visitors the Indepth understanding of the forced removals in Cape Town, part of a composition of what was declared a crime against humanity by the UN.
