BoKaap question for Selwyn or whomever

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are looking at the possibility of staying in an apartment in the BoKaap area of Cape Town. Is is safe? The reason I ask is that Selwyn wrote the following in January:

Presently there is quite an undercurrent of problem going on in the BoKaap as wealthy white Capetonians are buying houses in the area and gentrifying them which the local Muslim population dont want to happen as they feel that their commuinity life is being intervened. This is a very tricky scenario which still has not been resolved however I have full faith in the fact that as South Africans we will be able to eventually come to grips with this present day problem with our reconiliatory ways.
