Tshwelopele eviction case

This case is on its way to the Supreme Court of Appeal. In this matter, the Pretoria High Court upheld a defence of impossibility to a Mandament van Spolie claim. The local authority (Tshwane) and S A Police Services unlawfully evicted a large group of informal dwellers from a vacant piece of land and destroyed all their building materials in the process. Leave was granted to appeal to the Supreme Court of Appeal and we are busy pursuing this appeal.
