The pair were set to discuss the judgment between De Beer and Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma’s on the legality of the lockdown regulations.

Madonsela apologised to the ‘genuine’ participants: “Enemies of democracy hacked our event with noise and pornography, forcing us to postpone to a secure platform on a date to be advertised shortly.”

The High Court in Pretoria ruled on 2 June that the lockdown regulations in Level 4 and 3 were invalid and unconstitutional.

The application was brought by Reyno Dawid de Beer of Liberty Fighters Network (LFN) and the Hola Bon Renaissance Foundation.

Dlamini-Zuma was ordered by Judge Norman Davis to formulate changes to the regulations within 14 days.
