The recent incident at the Beetham was certainly a wake-up call for many. Protests are normal, but when advantage is taken of the situation to rob and throw stones and other missiles at innocent people stuck in traffic, it becomes a totally different story. That is BAD.
But what is worse, though the media seemed not to make too much fuss about it, is the matter involving the ‘eviction’ of lawful tenants from the Housing Development Corporation’s (HDC) Clifton Towers just around the corner from the Beetham. At about the same time were the blockades on the Priority Bus Route (PBR) and the Beetham Highway.
