CAPE TOWN - Hundreds of ANC supporters on Wednesday marched to the Western Cape Provincial Parliament to hand over a memorandum of service delivery grievances to the premier.

But their efforts were in vain as Western Cape Premier Helen Zille was not available to receive it.

Dozens of ANC supporters wearing T-shirts with party colours and President Jacob Zuma's face were bussed into the CBD.

ANC Provincial Secretary Songezo Mjongile told protesters, "Zille is perpetrating the same policies of the National Party. When National Party members left to join the ANC, Zille proudly took over the policies of the National Party."

Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille on Wednesday accused the ANC of setting back progress by reinstating two controversial councillors.

Andile Lili and Loyiso Nkohla were welcomed back into the party this week

The two were ringleaders of the so-called toilet war 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.

There have been several disruptions on the N2 highway and on Vanguard Drive due to demonstrators.

The City of Cape Town believes they are all orchestrated and linked.

De Lille says such incidents divert police resources and cause massive disruptions in the lives of many Capetonians.
