CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape High Court on Thursday postponed an application for an eviction order to remove alleged illegal occupants off privately owned land.
The case against community members of Kayamandi in Stellenbosch near Cape Town will resume on December 6.
Residents came in their hundreds to protest against the eviction application from the land they allegedly illegally occupied in recent months.
The Stellenbosch wine farm owner turned to the Western Cape High Court in a bid to obtain the eviction order after a number of structures removed from Watergang were subsequently rebuilt on the land.
Zola Ndalasi, a community leader from Kayamandi, said that the lawyer representing the Kayamandi residents had asked the court to postpone the matter as he was still preparing all the relevant paperwork.
