The Port Elizabeth Walk of Shame
It is hoped that the recent walk-about by more than 500 people of the
shameful environmental eye-sores created by Irish slumlord Denton will
result in those running the local authority to stir their stumps and
stop this obscene rape of our heritage.

I would urge those concerned about our built past to see the extent of
the damage by visiting the area which boasted irreplaceable
architectural gems of immense historical value before this “property
developer” got involved.

Walk down Donkin Street, turn left at Chapel Street, and up Victoria
Street to Belmont Terrace, the area in which Denton owns the major
portion of ruined buildings.

The fact that more than 500 people from all walks of life spent part of
Heritage Day to see how a visitor to this country has, single-handedly,
destroyed a major part of our built environment – while Provincial and
local authorities didn’t lift a finger to stop him.

Your report quotes Sharon Clephane as saying: “I wish he would pack his
bags and leave the country.” I know of no-one who does not share this
wish. Mr Denton is an unwelcome visitor, and the sooner he goes back to
Ireland – where he can destroy historical buildings to his heart’s
content – the better.

There is no place for him in our community.
