Possible Closure for The Old Gaol Backpackers

The owner of the Old Gaol Backpackers, Brian Peltason, is currently in a dispute with the South African Heritage Resource Agency (SAHRA) over the closure of the venue. SAHRA recently gave Peltason notice to leave, saying that they wish to turn the building into an educational center and that he had not looked after the building properly. The proposed closure has sparked strong, divided opinions in the community. Our reporter, Jane van Doorene has more on this story, speaking to some of the people it would affect most.
