IN DANGER

I live in the suburb of Kensington (closer to the border with Troyeville) and love the area because of its rich architectural and social history. The neighbourhood was once home to miners and mine foremen around the turn of the 20th century and there are many beautiful Victorian homes that, unfortunately, have come to be bought by landlords who rent them out to mozambicans or nigerians (often as many as 6 or 8 families in one house) who care very little about the character of the property and often damage it with below par, unauthorised and illegal renovations or additions.
