Enrenreich joins Malema at Cape court
Cape Town - ANC mayoral candidate Tony Ehrenreich was at the Western Cape High Court on Friday where judgment was expected in the so-called open-toilet saga in Khayelitsha.
He slipped under the yellow barrier tape around the steps of the court and quickly made his way inside.
As a heavy drizzle began to fall around 11:00, scores of protesters sang and danced outside court.
Wearing t-shirts bearing President Jacob Zuma's face, the protesters did not want to speak to media, except to say they were from Khayelitsha.
Curious tourists gathered around, taking photographs.
ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema and Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula earlier arrived at the court.
The DA-led City of Cape Town stands accused of violating residents' right to human dignity after 51 toilets were erected without enclosures in Makhaza, Khayelitsha in December 2009.
The ANCYL, on behalf of community members, lodged a complaint about the open toilets with the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) in January last year.
The SAHRC recommended to the City that it reinstall the 51 toilets, but the City appealed against the SAHRC finding.
This was when the ANCYL decided to launch a court application on behalf of the residents.
