SCA upholds high court ruling against UCT shack erectors
Five students erected a shack on campus to highlight issues of accommodation.
Five students appealed the initial ruling and turned down a compromise interdict offered by the court last month.
That would have allowed them to resume academic activity.
The students had erected a shack on campus earlier this year to highlight issues with the cost and availability of accommodation.
UCT spokesperson Elijah Moholola says, "UCT notes and respects the ruling by the SCA and in terms of the judgment, the five appellants are interdicted from erecting unauthorised structures on any of the UCT campuses."
