CAPE TOWN - The Cape Town City Centre could come to a virtual standstill on Thursday as activists behind two marches in the Cape Town CBD late last year, are planning yet another one to highlight the plight of the city's poor.

The first march last year became so chaotic that shops were looted, informal traders lost their goods and city property was damaged.

Now leaders of the Ses'khona Peoples Rights Movement, suspended and axed ANC members Loyiso Nkohla and Andile Lili, launched a verbal attack on Western Cape Premier Helen Zille at a media briefing on Tuesday.

Lili says they will forge ahead with a march for land, housing and proper sanitation, even if it does not get the green light from the City of Cape Town.

"If there's failure to give us the land, obviously we're going to sleep in town."

The activists have also threatened to embark on a mass hunger strike if their demands are not taken seriously.
