The iconic Hout Bay harbour โ€“ top of the itinerary for many visitors to Cape Town, if only for the best serving of snoek and chips in the country โ€“ is being torn apart by copper thieves, tik addicts, vandals, and opportunistic criminals. Why is the Department of Public Works and the Harbour Master doing almost nothing to change the fortunes of the once-thriving harbour? What could have been a hub of economic progress for the communities that depend on the infrastructure of the harbour is fast becoming a no manโ€™s land, stripped bare of anything that could earn pilferers quick cash.
