Green Market Square Refugees Now Loitering in Tenant Street


The refugees are currently camped along Tenant Street across the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in District Six.

Law enforcement officers are on high alert in the area and it has not been confirmed where the refugees are going. They had spent the night in a park close to the University after their removal from Green Market Square.

Day Zero for refugees that were camping out at Green Market Square was announced on Sunday 01 March 2020.

The City of Cape Town can legally chase them away from there or have them arrested, according to the court order granted over a week ago.

According to the refugees they have nowhere to go.

They are now looking to the UNHCR to assist them with temporary accommodation and to facilitate their exit from South Africa.
