Refugees in South African Church Are Not Homeless, Court Hears

The Western Cape High Court has heard an application by the City of Cape Town in a case that may determine the outcome of the refugee protest in the city, writes GroundUp's Tariro Washinyira. Acting Judge Daniel Thulare will decide on February 17 whether the City of Cape Town can effectively evict refugees living inside and outside the Central Methodist Mission in Greenmarket Square where they've been living for nearly three months.

Refugees protesting in Cape Town’s city centre want to be resettled (not South Africa or their countries of origin).
