In terms of Marriage Act2 no spouse may eject other spouse from matrimonial home without providing suitable alternative accommodation. Mr. Sisulu cannot eject Mrs. Sisulu within their matrimonial house except the court determine under which circumstance possible for person to eject the other spouse from matrimonial home. Mrs. Sisulu can therefore approach the court for interdict to stop Mr. Sisulu from ejecting her, and if her rights to live in her matrimonial house has been violated already, for example, if Mr. Sisulu denied her access, Mrs. Sisulu may rely on the mandament van spolie for her to access the house.
