Sakeliga and our local partners have initiated legal proceedings against National Government over the rolling state failure that enables the Enoch Mgijima Municipality’s collapse.  

The litigation aims to secure interim relief for businesses and residents of Queenstown and other affected towns, while developing permanent jurisprudence for greater oversight and intervention by organised business.  

Notwithstanding similarities to other collapsed municipalities, the Enoch Mgijima Municipality case offers a distinct and promising factual basis for strategic litigation. Sakeliga is therefore adding the municipality to our portfolio of litigation regarding municipal collapse, by which it develops mutually reinforcing judgments that increase accountability where possible, but otherwise facilitate stateproof, community-based solutions where necessary.
