City of Cape Town Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Marian Nieuwoudt says the…

City of Cape Town Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Marian Nieuwoudt says the beach swearing by-law is still in its draft form and residents can still comment on the proposal. The proposed by-law has been met with much criticism on social media. Nieuwoudt says the by-law is intended to provide for measures to protect coastal zones and managing public access, as well as social behaviour on beaches: “We need to address unruly behaviour and unruly behaviour is then defined as a set of possible behaviour which is listed as part of it is then at this stage described as the use of foul or indecent language.”

  1. Section 16 of the Constitution does not prohibit swearing. The by-law seeks to impose a restriction on freedom of expression not envisaged by the Constitution. The by-law is therefore unconstitutional!

  2. Of all the other laws or by-laws not imposed since the dawn of democracy this is the only ones you can come up with,too little too late
