SA Constitutional Court issues ground-breaking housing judgment (8 June 2017)

The Constitutional Court today set aside the eviction of 184 residents of Kiribilly, a block of flats in Berea in Johannesburg’s inner city.

The judgment held that evictions that lead to homelessness are unlawful, even if they are agreed to by all of the residents who stand to be evicted. Further, judges must make sure that people under threat of eviction are properly informed of their rights to contest eviction proceedings and claim alternative accommodation. In addition, judges must proactively investigate the circumstances of all residents in order to properly assess the impact that an eviction will have on their lives and living circumstances.

The Court’s unanimous decision, written by Justice Mojapelo emphasised “the fundamental importance that a person’s home has to the realisation of almost all human rights”. Even where it seems a person has agreed to be evicted, a court is not permitted to order that eviction unless it is made aware of all the relevant circumstances, and is sure that no-one will be left homeless.

UZA Comment:

Without prejudice to the living,

We, the people of Southern Africa overthrew the previous apartheid regime starting with the 1948 – 1952 Defiance Campaign ; and,  the people united with one voice in the 1955 Freedom Charter ; and, during a bloody and violent revolution, united as a non-political movement in the United Democratic Front ; and, thus was the final will  and intent of we, the people cemented in the 1994 RDP Policy Framework ;

HOWEVER, since 1994, instead of taking the road straight on to freedom and justice and fulfilling the RDP, South Africa took a short left via the Washington Consensus; and, our people were sold down the river, again… we ended up with a system of economic apartheid…

Instead of a lawful Republic of South Africa, we ended up with a foreign federal corporation, namely RSA INC. and a foreign federal corporate CON-stitution ; we, the people were asleep at the wheel; and, the same thing happened to each and every country with a central bank by an evil system of “globalization” known as the new world order; 

We have warned the imposters we want our Constitutional Hill back; it belongs to the we, the people; and, we are lawfully and peacefully restoring the sovereignty of the people and our lawful land Republics; they can two-step backwards all they want; their game is up; the people are wide awake;

It’s time to Emancipate ourselves from mental slavery;

Without malice aforethought; no obligation; in peace
