HOUT BAY - Five privileged Hout Bay families have spent 67 hours living at the Imizamo Yethu temporary site where thousands of fire victims have been living for three months.
The families say they hope that leaving their comfortable homes for the weekend will help to bridge the gap between rich and poor by encouraging open dialogue.

Disgruntled Imizamo Yethu residents took to the streets two weeks ago in protest over the slow pace of the City of Cape Town’s rebuilding efforts.
Thousands of fire victims have been living in temporary shacks for the past three months after losing their homes to a deadly fire.
One person died during the protest action, and the Independent Police Investigative Directorate is investigating.
