BREAKING: Court accepts chamber application

LYDENBURG – The Constitutional Court has accepted the three business chamber’s apllication and the matter will now go to court again.

This follows after the recent set-back when the Mbombela High Court determined that the Thaba Chweu Municipal regions’ chamber application was seen as “not urgent”.

The chambers tried to stop the ongoing Eskom electricity disconnections and vowed that no stone will be left unturned.

Their apllication was successful after it was filed on Monday, 6 November.

“We have just been informed by our legal team that the Constitutional Court has accepted our case which we filed on Monday. The Constitutional Court has given all the opposing parties till this coming Monday, the 13th November, to file their affidavits with the court. This court luckily for us functions differently than the High Court. They will after the 13th consider all the affidavits and then give us a court date. This time our application will be considered on the merits of our case,” the chambers said in a statement.

We will keep residents updated as the case unfolds.
