Pretoria - The Gauteng High Court, Pretoria, has ordered informal traders at the Denneboom train station in Mamelodi to make way for a mall construction within 48 hours.
Traders have been at loggerheads with the mall developers Interden Management Services and Isibonelo Property Services over their trading space.
They refused to relocate to an alternative space identified by developers on the grounds that it was far away from the train station, where they get their customers.
On Friday, developers of the R1.3 billion Tshwane Regional Mall brought an urgent court application with a view to get 29 traders and other unauthorised people to vacate the construction space.
Isibonelo chief executive Shadrack Mthethwa cited in court papers that disagreement with traders delayed the completion of the mall, initially scheduled to open in October 27 2017.
