Ses'khona leader unapologetic about 'poo throwing'
A defiant Andile Lili says he's not sorry for his actions because it had a positive outcome.
CAPE TOWN - Controversial activist and so called toilet wars ringleader, Andile Lili says the protests he and the Ses'khona People's Rights Movement have led have had a positive impact in some poor communities.
Lili and eight others are expected to be sentenced in the Bellville regional court today after dumping raw human waste at Cape Town International Airport in 2013.
They were found guilty of contravening the civil aviation act.
A defiant Lili says he's not sorry for his actions because their it prompted action from leaders to deliver services to the people.
"We are not apologetic and also you can see where I'm from now people got homes, proper houses, out of our struggles."
A defiant Lili said he was not scared of jail because his work yielded desired results.
"Even if it means that we must go to Pollsmoor for 100 years, we will go."
The nine were due to hear their fate on Monday when Magistrate Nonkosi Saba concluded what became known as the "poo protesters trial."
Saba said services at the airport temporarily suffered after the group dumped raw human sewage there.
The nine members had said they intended appealing their conviction for contravening the Act, and that their rights were being violated.
