Cape Town -
Nine men who allegedly dumped human waste at Cape Town International Airport were ordered by the Bellville Regional Court on Tuesday to report to their closest police station this month and next.
Loyiso Nkohla, Andile Lili, Yanga Mjingwana, Ben Dyani, Jaji Diniso, Bongile Zanazo, Thembela Mbanjwa, Bantubakhe Mqobodiya and Wandisile Mkapa appeared in court on charges under the Civil Aviation Act.
They allegedly dumped 10 buckets of faeces at the airport’s departures terminal in June.
ANC councillor Nkohla, former councillor Lili, Mjingwana and Mbanjwa indicated to the court that they would be be in the Eastern Cape this month and next and were ordered to report to police stations there.
The rest of the accused, who will remain in Cape Town during the two months, were told to check in at the police stations nearest their homes.
Seven of the men were initially denied bail but were later released following an application in the Western Cape High Court.
Earlier this year, the court ordered them not to convene or attend a protest without authorisation, to refrain from threatening, intimidating or interfering with members of the public and not to damage public property.
Lili was expelled in March from the City of Cape Town council after being found guilty of taking part in the illegal demolition of houses and for making derogatory comments to Khayelitsha residents.
The nine are due back in court on April 2.
