Activists supporting the River Club development say they remain hopeful of a positive outcome, despite yet another court postponement.

The Western Cape First Nation Collective was reacting to another delay in one of the legal battles over the contentious development.

The High Court in Cape Town was meant to hear a contempt of court application against the developers – but no judge was allocated to preside over the matter.

The application was brought when the developers resumed work on the site – after appealing the interdict to stop construction.

The Collective’s Zenzile Khoisan says the matter has been postponed for two weeks.

“We will follow the proceedings and we look forward to a positive outcome, in these matters. It is always our desire that this development must go ahead, so that we are able to secure for us – and for the seven generations into the future – a light and a livelihood, and a cultural heritage precinct for our people.”

Meanwhile, The Liesbeek Action Campaign (LAC) says it’s disappointed by another delay.

The LAC is one of the parties against the development.

Nadine Dirks, from the LAC, says the matter needs to be concluded.
