“It’s been too long that Ocean View has been forgotten about”, protests a resident to Mayor Dan Plato. Amongst the chaos, the Mayor tells a resident to “shut up.”
The public have taken to social media to respond.
Our anti-poor Mayor Dan Plato with some disgraceful behaviour not befitting a mayor. I wonder if he'd tell a resident of an affluent suburb who asked a legitimate question to "shut up"? https://t.co/hJPFd2uZHA

Surely this must go against his party's value system or maybe I'm just optimistic that they see us as fellow human beings.

Is that a mayor or a gangster? Such appalling behavior

The mayor of Cape Town – I hope the voters deal with him at election time. About the “people from the eastern cape” narratives – it’s time we stop that. Engage, debate, talk. But don’t walk into the trap set for you on identity politics. https://t.co/95sExJR6g5
