Answers wanted for JHB council's contempt of court

Residents who are soon to be evicted from their homes by the owners of private property, will ask the South Gauteng High Court  to fine the City of Johannesburg
R1 million  for every day the company has refused to comply with a Constitutional Court order.

In 2011, the country's highest court ordered the city to provide alternative accommodation for the residents of Saratoga Avenue in Johannesburg’s CBD.

However, the city has so far failed to provide that housing.

The attorney representing the firm that owns the property, Maurice Crespi, said an application calling on the executive mayor to appear before the Constitutional Court has been written.

The application calls for the mayor to answer why the city has been in contempt of the court order.
