Reading Material

A booklet containing recommended readings for the seminar can be obtained from your respective campuses. These can be collected from Course Materials at UCT, from the Law Dean’s Secretary at Stellenbosch and at the information session on Thursday at UWC. Please do these readings as they are relevant to the various talks taking place
and will enhance what you can get out of attending the seminar. Due to the length of the judgement, we were only able to include the media summary of Mazibuko v City of Johannesburg in the readers. We highly recommend that you read the full judgment before the seminar. It can be found here: Mazibuko. Also, you can find a note by Zackie Achmat, including a commentary on the case by Prof. Pierre De Vos and links to pieces by Eusebius Mackaiser and the Anti-Privatisation Forum here: http://writingrights.org/2010/07/21/water-is-life-but-life-is-cheap-pierre-de-vos/

We hope you’re looking forward to the seminar as much as we are!
