CAPE TOWN - The two men at the centre of the so-called toilet wars on Tuesday blamed Western Cape Premier Helen Zille for being cut off from the ANC.

They also announced that another march would take place at the Western Cape Provincial Legislature in Cape Town on Thursday.

The demonstration will take place under the banner of Ses'khona People's Rights Movement.

Loyiso Nkohla was expelled from the ruling party on Monday, while his right-hand man Andile Lili was given a one-year suspension.

Both men were instrumental in a series of faeces dumping incidents in Cape Town in 2013.

The men say they respect the ANC's decision.

However, Nkohla said he would appeal against the sanction.

Speaking to the media, the men said they were disciplined for merely fighting for basic human rights.

They put the blame firmly at the door of the Western Cape government.

In January, residents from several informal settlements across the city matched to the legislature demanding basic services.

The crowd also accused the DA-led government of ignoring the plight of the poor.
