Young families can’t afford houses

David Moses, Grassy Park

Thank you deputy mayor Ian Neilson for your input on the water restrictions (“City calls for lowering of water restrictions”, Southern Mail, September 5).

Please note though it’s not about the water but the bill that we the people of the Western Cape have to fork out.

Another thing I want to bring to your attention is to stop foreigners buying properties in South Africa, mostly Cape Town. We don’t benefit as none of the newly married couples can afford houses to start a family. Only the rich can or estate agents benefit.

We don’t want to be like the rest of Africa where only the rich survives.
