Lilian Chenwi provides an overview of the recent South African Constitutional Court's decision in which the Court found the KwaZulu-Natal Elimination and Prevention of Re-Emergence of Slums Act 6 of 2007 to be unconstitutional. She observes that the decision is another 'wake-up call' for the government to ensure that its approach to the challenge of informal settlements or slum conditions is pro-poor and acknowledges peoples' existing circumstances.
