Pilgrim's Rest action urgent: court

The North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria has ruled that an application for an interdict submitted by the business people of Pilgrim's Rest in Mpumalanga was indeed urgent.

At the onset of the matter on Wednesday, Judge Stanley Makgoba said he deemed the application made by affected business people as a matter deserving urgency.

The group of business people is seeking an urgent interdict to prevent their eviction from business premises in Pilgrim's Rest.

At least 17 tenants in the old gold mining town, which has been declared a national monument, face eviction at the end of the month after being served with notices.
