The Cape Town Magistrates Court has ruled in favour of the seven accused, who were charged after several poo flinging incidents in the Western Cape.

The City of Cape Town charged the group incited violence and put the health of innocent people at risk when they embarked on incidents where human faeces was dumped outside the Provincial Legislature and Cape Town International Airport.
In his judgment Magistrate Jushree Steyn said the state had a weak case against the accused.
Leader of the group Andile Lili, who after the verdict addressed hundreds of supporters, has indicated they will institute legal action against provincial government.
