The Constitutional Court has delivered a unanimous judgment declaring a section of the Apartheid-Era Intimidation Act unconstitutional.

In 2012, general Alfred Moyo, an activist from Makause informal settlement, in Germiston was arrested and charged with intimidation under Section 1(1)b of the act.

It's alleged Moyo planned a march against police brutality to the Primrose police station where he told officers he would make sure they were removed and there would be bloodshed.

He took his fight to the Apex Court to have the section of the Intimidation Act struck down.
 

Moyo was represented by the Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa and the Centre for Applied Legal Studies.
