De Wet Road guest house accused of racism following eviction of black guests

The owners of the property initially claimed they had not received payment and asked the black couple to leave.

A black couple was allegedly abruptly evicted from De Wet Road guest house in Cape Town in an apparent racists incident.

Twitter user @NyamsieM, username Kumkanikazi, on Saturday reported what she claims happened at the De Wet Road guest house in a series of tweets.

After booking the accommodation through Rennies Travel and checking in on Friday, the owners of the property initially claimed they had not received payment and asked the black couple to leave.

“The owner came at 10am and said he did not receive payment therefore we not suppose to be there @RenniesTravel confirmed they paid and later we where then told they don’t mind refunding us and we should be out by @AirManagedSA and they did refund,” she tweeted.

Dismayed by the treatment they received, Kumkanikazi accused the owners of racism and tweeted,

We have just been evicted from a guest house booked by our travelling agent the minute he noticed we black at Camps bay capetown, our Uber driver just said welcome to capetown.

A video was also posted on Twitter with the owners firmly asking the couple to leave the property.
