The Cape Coloured Congress, spearheaded by Fadiel Adams, whose ‘Gatvol’ movement has gathered steam in the city’s periphery, has its eyes set on destabilising Cape Town’s tourism industry with protest action in the days to come.
Cape Town tourism shutdown is coming, Gatvol mob warns
Adams, in a Facebook Live video, set out his manifesto, declaring war against the Western Cape government for its repeated failure to uplift the coloured community in Cape Town, which he claims, has been strategically marginalised for far too long.
Speaking to his cult followers after an interview with Newzroom Afrika, Adams lambasted the Democratic Alliance (DA) for showing, once again, that it cares very little for the rising deaths linked to gang violence in Cape Town.
This assertion, the Gatvol leader made in reaction to John Steenhuisen’s ‘fact-finding’ trip to Ukraine.
“John Steenhuisen, your party leader, is in Ukraine, so disappointed and disgusted at the death of a handful of Europeans that he could take a 20-odd-hour flight to go and see for himself. But… two years ago we asked for a commission of inquiry as to why our children on the Cape Flats and the DA dismissed it, just like that,” he said.
The Gatvol mob would not reveal explicitly what plans are in place in their attempt to destabilise the Cape Town tourism industry, but Adams did mention that some of the strategies applied may include:
- Sending alerts to tourism agencies about the dangers of visiting Cape Town
- Running awareness campaigns at tourist hotspots about gang violence and murder in Cape Town
- Displaying open coffins outside provincial legislature buildings and tourist hotspot areas.
It’s unclear, at this stage, if any demonstrations will be held which may affect traffic. All Adams revealed, at this time, is that action will be taken in the coming days.
“We are gonna come after these people in the next few days, with a strategy. It’s gonna be so aggressive. They can sue me again, it’s fine,” he declared.
Here’s the Facebook Live video, where Adams details his plans to shutdown Cape Town tourism in the coming days:
