CAPE TOWN - A Khayelitsha community leader says protesters will not leave the office of Western Cape Premier Helen Zille today until they are offered a chance to discuss their sanitation issues with her.

Khayelitsha resident and protest leader Xolani Dyuli has called for today's demonstration to once again raise issues around poor sanitation.

This comes after a string of incidents which saw human waste being dumped at the Provincial Legislature and the Cape Town International Airport over the past few months.

Dyuli says residents plan to hand over yet another memorandum with a list of their demands.

"We will stay there until the premier responds to our memorandum. If she doesn't respond to it, we will not move."
