Cape Town - City Mayor Patricia de Lille has slammed the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) over its independent probe of the toilet saga, the Cape Times reported on Wednesday.

She reportedly also claimed in a letter to the commission last Tuesday that its spokesperson Isaac Mangena should be working on behalf of the ANC Youth League.

This was in response to a previous report in which he said De Lille had claimed people were happy with the bucket system.

She wrote in the letter that she had said some residents were reluctant to forgo the system.

The commission reportedly conducted an inspection of toilets in Gugulethu without consulting or informing the city, finding that they were in "crisis" and a health risk.

De Lille said the SAHRC had not been fully briefed about the effects of the current Sannicare labour dispute on service delivery in the area.

Mangena told the newspaper he could not comment on the letter but that SAHRC chairperson Lawrence Mushwana would meet De Lille on Thursday.
