Residents of the Joe Slovo informal settlement say they will appeal against an eviction order granted yesterday by the Cape high court.

The residents are being evicted to make way for the construction of the N2 Gateway housing project.

Joe Slovo is one of Cape Town's biggest informal settlements, with about 20000 people.

The order was handed down by Judge President John Hlophe.

The settlement is about 10km from the city centre. - Sapa
