An application for leave to appeal against the order of the High Court which denied the applicants an opportunity to intervene in the proceedings concerning the confirmation of an interim order of the High Court.

The applicants unsuccessfully petitioned the Supreme Court of Appeal. They then approached the Constitutional Court, which held that the applicants had a direct and substantial interest and granted them leave to intervene in the confirmatory proceedings. Main judgment: Zondo J (Moseneke ACJ, Skweyiya ADCJ, Cameron J, Dambuza AJ, Jafta J, Khampepe J, Madlanga J, and Majiedt AJ concurring).
