South Africa’s High Court reserved judgment in a case that heard a legal challenge to plans by Eskom to build a gas-fired power plant, according to activists.

Civil society organisations including the South Durban Community Environmental Alliance and groundWork filed an application last year to declare unlawful an environmental impact assessment “based on inadequacies” for a 3 000-megawatt gas-to-power plant.

The case started on Tuesday and adjourned a day early, the groups said in a statement on Tuesday.
