This is what's happening in Cape Town...Somerset West.
I used to live in Somerset West...a beautiful spot, Helderberg Mountain, close to Strand and Gordon's Bay, great golf course, and many positive features. Nothing could be more peaceful and pleasant, even the drive into Cape Town everyday was pleasant with free flowing traffic.
Now the Cape is a hell-hole...just look at this 'Chaos' on N2 as 'land grabbers' burn shops and attack vehicles | News24
Terribly sad...it's Paradise Lost...for ever. We were planning to move to the Western Cape sometime ago because Natal has become a shit-hole but nothing like this.
And Mike, everybody laughed at you when opted to go to the Overberg, except Draad and me.
The big question in SA where can you now live in relative peace maintaining a reasonable lifestyle...even Knysna is becoming a rat hole.
Maybe the Cederberg, Clanwilliam...I know it well when it was just a dorpie but it's a beautiful area.
You were wise to leave.
