Activist groups, including Reclaim the City, have taken the Western Cape provincial government to court over the controversial private sale of the Tafelberg School site.
Organisations say that the Sea Point property should be used for the development of mixed income housing for the working class, to help address social inequity and land justice.
According to Reclaim the City's Kopano Maroga, provincial government has prioritised profits over social development and cohesion.
Our key concerns is that the province is more interested in getting immediate cash injections than making an investment into property that would have long standing social benefits.— Kopano Maroga, spokesperson for Reclaim the City
Maroga says it is important to redress the legacy of apartheid's spatial planning by integrating people and communities from different class and race groups.
