CAPE TOWN - The Ses'khona Peoples Rights Movement face another court battle.

The civil rights group has been barred from staging protests in the Cape Town CBD because of pending court action.

Ses'khona says it has scrapped a march planned for this week, due to mounting legal troubles.

The group's Andile Lili says the City of Cape Town has approached the courts, to prevent the group from hosting any marches in the City Centre.

"We will only hear the case in September, then after that whether we are going to march again or not will depend on the outcome of our case."

Lili and fellow Ses'khona leader Loyiso Nkohla have also been sued for millions of rands by the city, for leaving destruction in the wake of marches they'd allegedly orchestrated.
