A controversial court case between an old community and a land developer is under way in Cape Town.
The community of Bo Kaap is worried its Malay heritage, which dates back more than 300 years, is being lost to big business.
Developers want to build new flats and houses, but locals have been protesting and preventing construction vehicles from entering the site.
Al Jazeera’s Fahmida Miller reports from Cape Town.
