The Fees Must Fall protests had dire consequences for café employee Eddie at the University of Cape .
Jimmy Lightfoot, 21, pictured, has lived at Westfort for as long as he can remember.
Along with his mother Aletha, brother Henry, sister-in-law Anne and Foxy the dog, Jimmy lives in a small room that has no electricity or running water.
Jimmy said: ''I get a disability grant of R850 a month because of my epilepsy as does my brother who also suffers from the same illness.''
Disability grants, in one form or another, play a major role in many people's lives at Westfort and the Lightfoots are no different.
''Things are not going too well, but we get by. Of course, I would like to get a proper job, but it is not easy.
''As soon as people learn about my epilepsy, I find myself looking elsewhere,'' said Jimmy, who dropped out of school after grade 6.
During their spare time, of which there is plenty, the family enjoy chatting with the neighbours and listening to music on a small portable radio.
''Living here is like one big family. Black and white we live side by side with no problems. We look after each other and try and help where we can.
''We always look forward to when it is one of our birthdays because then we make a fire and braai some meat," Jimmy said.
