Abahlali launches a branch in Silver City (Umlazi)
Today Abahlali will be launching a branch in Silver City. This settlement is settlement is situated in Umlazi, South Durban.
Today we are pleased that this community will reclaim its membership and join the big family of Abahlali. It is known that the Silver City is one of the shack settlements that are excluded from all kinds of services for political reasons. We are aware that the community is not getting development because it is taken as the voting pool for the ruling party to keep this ward in the hands of the ruling Party.

Abahlali baseMjondolo press statement
Abahlali baseMjondolo Return to the Constitutional Court Tomorrow
The Marikana Land Occupation in Cato Crest was founded after an illegal eviction by the eThekwini Municipality. It has been destroyed over and over again by the eThekwini Municipality since March last year. Each time the occupation has been rebuilt. We have been to court and won urgent interdicts against the city preventing them from illegally destroying the occupation. We have marched on the City Hall in our thousands. When we did not receive a reply to our memorandum we organized simultaneous road blockades across the city. Now we are taking this struggle to the Constitutional Court.
