Frustrated residents from the affluent suburbs of Pretoria want intervention to have the refugees camping outside the United Nations building removed.

Brooklyn and Waterkloof homeowners association has turned to the North Gauteng High Court to obtain an urgent interdict against the foreign nationals.

Desperate for a roof over their heads, the refugees have been camping outside the offices for the past month.

But their presence has prompted residents to approach the courts to have them removed.

They want an interdict that will prevent them from gathering and protesting in the area between 8am and 5pm.

They also want them to be stopped from erecting shelters in the area.

Some residents are complaining about having to deal with human excrement on the pavements.

They’re demanding that they be prevented from blocking driveways, causing noise and illegally parking vehicles in the area.
