Fadiel Adams from the Cape Coloured Congress has been on hunger strike outside parliament for seven days now.
Adams wants President Cyril Ramaphosa to take drastic action against murders on the Cape Flats.
Does Mr President know about this and why is he not sending out people to talk to the protesters? pic.twitter.com/NocKSyhwNp

Last week Friday, Adams referenced the murder of eight-year-old Tazne van Wyk from Elsies River and the killing of 7-year-old Emaan Solomons in Ocean View among others.
“I’m going to be here until our president does something about it. We need drastic action, no more lip-service, no more sending the army that doesn’t make any difference; the president needs to commit to making a change in the Cape Flats.”
Adams said he will continue the hunger strike as long as his body allowed him to.
So far non of the Members of Parliament have taken notice of the community activist.
