District 6

Hotels near District 6, Cape Town, South Africa .

Among the many districts and suburbs that Cape Town has, it can be said that there is none more controversial of these districts that District 6. The said district is actually the name of a former inner-city residential area, but it has been made famous because of the event that happened during the apartheid regime where 60,000 of the inhabitants of the district were forcefully removed during the 1970s.

The old district used to be an area where the community was made up of former artisans, slaves, immigrants, merchants and more. Although simply just a district, it made up a tenth of the total population of Cape Town during the said years. However, in February 1966, the government had declared District 6 as an area for whites only, pushing the rule under the Group Areas Act, and by 1968, the removal of the inhabitants started.

By 2003, some work has been started to renew the buildings that are going to be the homes of the first returning residents. Over the succeeding years, approximately 4,000 former residents have been set to return.
