CAPE TOWN - A group behind several violent service delivery protests in Cape Town had yet another march derailed.

The Ses'khona People's Rights Movement's application to protest on the 27 June has been declined by the City of Cape Town.

The City has approached the Western Cape High Court to bar the group from protesting pending the court's decision in September.

Ses'khona has been blamed for several unruly demonstrations in Cape Town, including the devastating protest to the provincial legislature in October last year.

The group's Andile Lili says they're not suprised.

"We were denied on the basis that they have a case together before the Western Cape High Court. We actually expected that they city would behave in that way because they are scared of us at Ses'khona."
