A summons was issued to Gatvol Capetonian on 29 March for over R1,3 million in damages related to a “shut down” of major routes in Cape Town in August 2019.

The city said that it was “reckless, wrongful and unlawful” of the organisation to try to incite a “shutdown”.

CoCT further issued a Letter of Demand to the EFF for damage to infrastructure in Brackenfell on 20 November 2020.

A total amount of R87 312,25 is being sought from the EFF to cover the costs of infrastructure repair and fire-fighting suggest equipment.

The EFF has 21 days to make payment into the City’s bank account or face a summons, which will also include a claim for legal costs to recover the funds, plus interest.
