ANC marchers occupy CT streets
Hundreds of ANC supporters are marching over service delivery issues in the Cape Town CBD.
CAPE TOWN - Hundreds of ANC supporters are marching to the Western Cape Provincial Legislature in the Cape Town CBD.
They're demonstrating over service delivery issues and are expected to hand over a memorandum of grievances.
Dozens of ANC supporters wearing T-shirts with party colours and President Jacob Zuma's face have been bussed into the CBD, led by a police cavalcade.
Some have formed a circle and are singing and dancing in a parking lot.
In one of their songs they slam Western Cape Premier Helen Zille chanting "You won't get another chance Zille, the way the Western Cape runs is stupid."
Supporters have also been heaping praise on President Jacob Zuma via loudpeakers fitted to a campaign van.
Posters read " DA's promises stink in the Western Cape."
Police officers are keeping a watchful eye on demonstrators. They want to avoid a repeat of the chaotic march late last year in the city centre.
This is the latest in a series of ANC-lead marches in the Cape Town CDB.
In February at least 12 protesters were arrested for taking part in an illegal march in the city.
Meanwhile, Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille has accused the ANC of setting back progress by reinstating two controversial councillors.
Andile Lili and Loyiso Nkohla were welcomed back into the ANC fold this week
The two were ringleaders of the so-called toilet wars in the Mother City last year.
De Lille says ANC proxies are instigating protests that have led to several road closures and the destruction of public property during a series of demonstrations over the past few weeks.
There have been several disruptions on the N2 Highway and Vanguard Drive caused by demonstrators.
The City of Cape Town believes they are all orchestrated and linked.
De Lille says such incidents divert police and resources and cause massive disruptions in the lives of many Capetonians.
