The Western Cape High Court has ruled that refugees and asylum seekers must comply with city bylaws outside the Central Methodist Church.
Authorities approached the court after foreign nationals refused to abide by city by-laws in and around the church.
One of the refugee leaders said the ruling exposes South Africa’s attitude towards refugees.
The more than 700 refugees have been living there since October last year — impacting local businesses — while they demand to be resettled to other countries.
“I’m so happy and very glad about what happened. The whole world will witness what South Africa is all about towards refugees,” said refugee leader Jean-Pierre Balous.
“As a refugee in South Africa you don’t have any rights, you don’t have anything. They treat you like a second-class citizen, they treat you like nothing.”
Balous claimed the judge had denied xenophobia in his judgment.
