Cabinet condemns faeces protest

Cabinet has come out strongly in condemning the dumping of human waste outside the Western Cape Legislature by protestors who are against portable bucket toilets.


Police were called in when a small group of protesters threw buckets full of human faeces at the doors of the Western Cape Legislature in Cape Town last week.

At a post-Cabinet briefing on Thursday, Minister in the Presidency Collins Chabane, said while government respects the rights of citizens to protest, "this particular form of protest is undignified and poses a serious health risk to communities and to the protestors themselves".

The protesters, led by former ANC PR Councillor Andile Lili, ANC Youth League and PR Councillor Loyiso Nkohla and United Democratic Front leader Sulyman Stellenboom, travelled all the way to the city centre from Khayelitsha’s Enkanini and TR informal settlement with porta-potties full of faeces in order to empty them in front of the Premier's office.

"Cabinet calls on citizens to raise their grievances constructively and to treat public institutions with utmost respect, irrespective of their grievances." – SAnews.gov.za
