The residents of Joe Slovo shack settlement in Langa, will stand before the Constitutional Court on Thursday to contest the order obtained by Housing Minister Lindiwe Sisulu in the Cape High Court in March to evict them and send residents to the outskirts of Cape Town in Delft. Residents are furious at the idea of being relocated to Delft.

The community of Joe Slovo is supported by the Western Cape Anti-Eviction Campaign, which includes communities in Mitchell's Plain, Gugulethu, Athlone, Hanover Park, Ocean View, Khayelitsha, Atlantis and elsewhere in the province. People from these areas will also be going along to Johannesburg in Support.

Organiser of the Joe Slovo task team Mzwanele Zulu explains that because Judge John Hlope ruled against them, issuing them with a ruling that they must be evicted from Joe Slovo, they will be heard by the Constitutional Court.
“We have appealed against the ruling. We are leaving Cape Town tomorrow and will be going to Johannesburg to the Constitutional Court. Our case is going to be heard in the Constitutional Court on Thursday August 23.”
