CAPE TOWN - Several police vehicles have escorted hundreds of people back to Cape Town Station after they descended on the Western Cape High Court on Friday morning.

The marchers, who braved the scorching sun, showed up in their numbers to show support for expelled ANC councillor Loyiso Nkohla.

Several police vans along with a nyala monitored the demonstration.

Nkohla was in court to appeal a decision by the City of Cape Town to sack him as a councillor.

He was fired for his involvement in a series of faeces dumping incidents in the municipality.

Addressing the crowd, Nkohla thanked them for their support.

He told them he will continue to fight for better service delivery in townships.

The former councillor says his "wrongful dismissal case" has been postponed.
