Cape Town – Bo-Kaap residents have not given up their quest to preserve the area's heritage and will continue with demonstrations in coming weeks, said Bo-Kaap Collective member Safwaan Laubscher.

At the same time an online petition to block gentrification - Save our Bo Kaap, Save our African Heritage, Stop all Developments - sent to Mayor Dan Plato is gaining momentum with more than 21 000 signatures by last night.
