CAPE TOWN - A group of men who allegedly dumped human waste at Cape Town International Airport several months ago have been ordered to report daily to their closest police station until the end of January.

The nine men who are behind the so-called toilet wars, appeared in the Bellville Regional Court on Tuesday on charges under the Civil Aviation Act.

The group dumped faeces at the provincial legislature, city council and the airport a few months ago as part of their protest for better sanitation services in townships.

Ringleader Loyiso Nkohla says the case has been remanded to April next year.

"I will be travelling to the Eastern Cape and I have to report to the police that I will be leaving the province. The bail conditions have been relaxed to stand from 6am up to 8pm."

Meanwhile, Western Cape Premier Helen Zille has condemned the so-called poor wars.

She believes they form part of the ANC's alleged campaign to destabilise the province.

The Western Cape is the only province that is led by the Democratic Alliance (DA).
