Cape Town - The Western Cape government has failed in its bid to interdict seven community leaders from interfering with a housing project in Delft, Cape Town, the Cape Times reported on Friday.

It had reportedly applied for an interim interdict against the group, claiming that they were central to organising a series of protests, some of which turned violent.

The protests took place at the site of the Delft Symphony 3 and 5 housing project between 11 and 22 March, causing the construction site to be temporarily shut down at times.

According to the report, the Western Cape High Court dismissed the application on Thursday, finding that it was up to the provincial government to demonstrate that the seven had committed acts that interfered with its rights, or that it had a well-grounded apprehension that they might do so.

The seven are Zwelohlanga Ndiki, Xolani Thomose, Vuyisile Goqoza, Nomthulizi Meyeki, Loyiso Mtana, Siviwe Nondomga, and Mncedisi Kolisi.
