Johannesburg – The City of Tshwane will on Thursday ask the Constitutional Court for leave to appeal a high court ruling that it had to stop removing Pretoria’s old street names.

On June 2, 2015, the High Court in Pretoria denied the city leave to appeal a judgment it handed down on April 19, 2013.

In the 2013 judgment, the city was ordered to stop removing the names and replace the ones it had already removed. The case was brought by civil rights group AfriForum.

On August 3, 2015, the Supreme Court of Appeal dismissed the city's application for special leave to appeal the high court’s ruling. It then approached the Constitutional Court.

AfriForum had argued that the metro council followed incorrect procedure when it changed the names and that its actions were thus illegal.
