Western Cape Premier and leader of the DA, Helen Zille, said that at a meeting in Khayelitsha yesterday, members of the ANC Youth League threw faeces and raw sewerage on her vehicle convoy. The poo-flinging apparently occured when residents protested the provision of portable toilets instead of flushing ones. The Cape Times front page this morning shows a picture of a protester throwing the contents of a ‘bucket toilet’ onto a vehicle while Zille was adamant on Twitter that it is not a bucket toilet, but the tank of a portable flush toilet. The Cape Times also didn’t directly point fingers at the ANCYL, but Zille seems convinced they are responsible.
Crappy situation that.
“During the Western Cape government event for the “110% green” campaign, some ANC Youth League members started protesting outside, said spokesperson Zak Mbhele.
He said they threw faeces at the bus and some cars outside the venue.” [News24]
And as is customary…the DA will say one thing and the ANC will say another. Typical political mudslinging..or in this case poo-slinging.
Also i should be commended for not including more toilet humour in this post, but i hope this behaviour doesn’t become common place or else sh*t will hit the fan. Poolitics in this country is already knee deep in sh*t.
