Russell Court Mansions – 78 Russell Road, Central I
have never seen more disgusting accommodation in my life. This building
houses many people who live in the most appalling conditions that can
only lead to extensive health problems. I have visited this building on
three or four previous occasions with officials of the Metro including
Fire and Safety, Environmental Health, Building Inspectorate, SAPS and
the Metro Safety and Security Department. The Metro, despite reports
that describe the unacceptability of the condition of the building in
general and the dreadful health related standards within, have never
taken action. I have drawn this problem to the attention of the Moslem
Judicial Council to no avail, the building owner being Mr Moosagie.

Furthermore, this property provides a base for criminals who use the
stairs via Dollery Street into Richmond Hill to ply their trade and for
the many criminals active in Central at present. The stairs on the
Russell Court Mansions side are also used for rubbish dumping next to
the building!

I make this request for action to be taken with immediate affect in
order to condemn the building and in so doing evict the residents.
Building owners must be held responsible. The Metro hierarchy must
