DA goes to court to challenge beach closures
Government requests additional time to formulate reasons for its action
On Thursday the DA followed through on its threats to go to court to challenge a decision by the government to close beaches on the Garden Route for the entirety of the festive season.
“We had provided President Cyril Ramaphosa and minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma with an extended deadline of 10am this morning to provide reasons justifying the closure of beaches along the Western Cape’s Garden Route. Both the president and minister Dlamini-Zuma have failed to respond by the extended hour,” DA leader John Steenhuisen said..
