ANCYL to continue with toilet protests
The League vowed to continue with its protests against poor sanitation in Western Cape townships.
CAPE TOWN - The ANC Youth League (ANCYL) on Monday vowed to push ahead with its protests against poor sanitation in informal settlements in the Western Cape.
On Saturday, the provincial government warned authorities will not tolerate any more feces-flinging protests in Cape Town.
Over the past two weeks, several community members and ANCYL officials used human waste to demonstrate against poor sanitation services in the municipality.
Following Monday's statement, it would appear the so-called toilet war in the Western Cape is far from over.
Despite the arrests of nearly 200 disgruntled township residents, protests look set to continue.
Residents are protesting against the roll out of portable toilets in informal settlements.
Western Cape Human Settlements MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela was the latest victim to have feces thrown on his vehicle.
He was conducting a housing handover in Khayelitsha's C-Section.
"The manner in which these people are raising these concerns is really disgusting."
Madikizela said the ANCYL should rather refrain from such acts.
