SJC Sanitation ​Court ​Case Postponed

The Social Justice Coalition (SJC) and the City of Cape Town were due to appear before the Equality Court on 5 December 2017. The SJC approached the court to challenge the inferior sanitation services provided to informal settlements by the City and to mandate the City to draw up a reasonable plan that seeks to address the problem.

The case has since been postponed and a new court date has not yet been set. The postponement is as a result of an amicable agreement between both the SJC and the City of Cape Town. The postponement will allow the SJC to file further papers in light of new information that has been made available during the court processes to date.

​The City will in turn be afforded an opportunity to respond to these further papers.​

The SJC will communicate the new court dates as soon as they are finalised.
