Stanfield’s ‘mediator’ interdicted by City of Cape Town
In the latest development involving the City of Cape Town and suspicions of gang infiltration and officials being targeted, it has obtained a High Court order against a housing organisation leader linked to alleged 28s boss Ralph Stanfield.
The order is against Riaan Koeberg and Group 4 Developers (G4D), described on its Facebook page as ‘a non-political community housing organisation,’ as well as members and associates of that group.
The Daily Maverick reports that Koeberg claims to represent residents living in historically poorer Cape Town suburbs in need of housing and improved related services.
He previously warned the city’s human settlements staff, in a video posted on social media last year, that if they entered Mitchells Plain, there was no guarantee they would leave alive.
The order, granted in the Western Cape High Court and dated 23 January, says Koeberg and G4D ‘are interdicted and restrained from’ entering a municipal building without authorisation.
They also may not obstruct the entrances and exits of any municipal building or unlawfully demonstrate – as in protest – within 200 metres of those.
The order banned Koeberg and G4D from ‘intimidating, threatening, harassing or assaulting’ any City of Cape Town officials or members of the public using municipal buildings.
Koeberg yesterday confirmed to DM that the city had obtained a court order, but said it would not affect all of G4D’s activities.
‘G4D will continue with fighting for the people. This is no setback. When people act like that, they always have something to hide,’ he said.
The Sunday Times has reported that Koeberg said that he acted as mediator for Stanfield in terms of several housing developments.
