The Western Cape High Court has ordered the city to halt all prosecutions of homeless people who allegedly break bylaws on Friday.
The high court also ordered the city to review its municipal legislation related to vagrancy.
This comes after seven homeless people asked for an interdict to stop the city from confiscating their belongings and issuing fines.
Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show chats to Dingley Marshall director and a lawyer representing those homeless people Lucien Lewin to give more insight on the matter.
The order also prevents the city from confiscating property belonging to the seven applicants and all other homeless people. It also interdicted the city from harassing and abusing people who live on the street.— Lucien Lewin, Director - Dingley Marshall
