Some residents of the L’Azur complex in Wilderness were caught by surprise when welcomed by the sign which read: “No Ford Kuga cars allowed inside these premises”.
While the sign has now been taken down, a picture of the board has been doing the rounds on social media, with some labelling it as discrimination.
Ruhan Fouche, who is a trustee of the complex’s body corporate, Status Mark Property Management, has refuted reports that the sign was put up by the area’s caretaker.
“The board has been removed. I removed it because no one asked for it and no one had granted permission for it.
“I don’t think it’s right, because the people who bought the car would have not anticipated what is currently going on with the car,” he said.
Fouche added that he was trying to contact the complex’s caretaker to enquire about who erected the sign.
“It’s discrimination in a way. The strange thing is that when I was putting the sign down, one woman who was standing across the road asked me why I was doing it.
“It just shows the differences in opinions around these issues.”
He said the matter would be investigated.
