Question posted in the Landlord Tenant Law category relating to Western Cape

Good morning. 

Me, my husband and kids had to be in cape town high court this morning for eviction process against us. This morning we waited for our lift and he never showed up and we can't get hold of him still. We also cant afford an uber drive to there, so we could not be at court and ot was really out of pur hands and didn't know what to do. I contacted the attorneys of the applicant and i contacted the court to explain my situationand they just said that they cant help me.

Please help. I dont know what to do and im worried that they will arrest us for not being there.
