The SCA also did not do their homework in the case presented to them about the street renaming fiasco in and around Durban a few years ago either. eThekweni Municipality had formed so called "Ward Committees" which were barely advertised prior to their formation and consisted predominantly of ANC members and when the DA challenged the whole non consultative basis for the street renaming the SCA ruled in eThekweni's favour that the fact there were ward committees and they had agreed to it was in effect a sufficient consultative basis.
In this case Judge Esther Steyn delivered a totally correct judgement which the SCA should have upheld. I only hope that there is still a way ( Constitutional Court?) to hit this vipers nest trading as eThekweni Municipalty with a successful challenge and see this illegal building reduced to rubble.
