This booklet shares the story of Ruo Emoh (Our Home, spelt backwards) - a housing project through which 49 families have moved into homes on a well-located piece of infill land in Colorado Park in Mitchells Plain, Cape Town. Community organising and planning for Ruo Emoh started in 1997 and continued over twenty years. Administrative and political regulations and obstacles, as well as neighbouring ratepayers’ interventions, repeatedly delayed the project. Nevertheless, the community’s persistence eventually paid off. The housing project was completed and Ruo Emoh’s 49 families moved into their new homes on December 22nd, 2017.
