Enrenreich joins Malema at Cape court

2011-04-29 12:59

Cape Town - ANC mayoral candidate Tony Ehrenreich was at the Western Cape High Court on Friday where judgment was expected in the so-called open-toilet saga in Khayelitsha.

He slipped under the yellow barrier tape around the steps of the court and quickly made his way inside.

As a heavy drizzle began to fall around 11:00, scores of protesters sang and danced outside court.
Wearing t-shirts bearing President Jacob Zuma's face, the protesters did not want to speak to media, except to say they were from Khayelitsha.

Curious tourists gathered around, taking photographs.

ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema and Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula earlier arrived at the court.

The DA-led City of Cape Town stands accused of violating residents' right to human dignity after 51 toilets were erected without enclosures in Makhaza, Khayelitsha in December 2009.

The ANCYL, on behalf of community members, lodged a complaint about the open toilets with the SA Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) in January last year.

The SAHRC recommended to the City that it reinstall the 51 toilets, but the City appealed against the SAHRC finding.

This was when the ANCYL decided to launch a court application on behalf of the residents.

      They have to make the most of it. Its the only thing they can criticize the DA on. Barely.

    "Curious tourists gathered around, taking photographs." What a shitty advert for SA. And what is the Minister of Sport doing at a toilet issue?..trying to promote the new sport of Dung Flinging? Tax payers money is highly appreciated in the form of toilet paper. Malema,"Enrenreich" and Mbalula have wiped their asses on what's important by turning this ANCYL manufactured "issue" into another expencive waste of time!

      " sport of Dung Flinging" - hilarious! Thanks for the chuckle.

      I have it on good authority that Anc13thDisciple is actually a bored white housewife from Parow.

    Longdrop Tony is a fool. Interesting timing on the judgement though - hopefully it swings the DA's way, and leaves the ANC luminaries redfaced.

  • daaivark - 2011-04-29 13:31

    Proof that politics here is up to shit.

  • Notuagain - 2011-04-29 13:31

    Lets all agree that open toilets are a crappy idea. Fix the problem and move on.

      iamasouthafr - 2011-04-29 13:41

      Let the facts tell the stort Notuagain.

      DeonL - 2011-04-29 14:02

      It is a bit difficult to try to fix it (the walls) when the "youth" brakes it down as soon as it gets erected. They want solid brick walls, brakes down anything else.

  • Pat Bromilow-Downing - 2011-04-29 13:37

    Wouldn't surprise me if these 3 wankers have some insider information of what the judgement is going to be so are trying to score maximum political points. Hope it all backfires in their faeces.

      DeonL - 2011-04-29 14:04

      On the DA site is already a comment on the judgement, it must be fixed but the DA fears the walls might be removed again.

    A long drop to freedom, Comrades.

      Gorilla - 2011-04-29 14:09

      hahahahaha that's funny. Shot dude!

  • oistar - 2011-04-29 13:54

    Clutching at straws, for the sake of 51 unenclosed toilets. Meanwhile how many others are still awaiting their service deliveries? Ehrenreich, Malema etc, your smelly reputation preceded you

  • ZACKIE - 2011-04-29 14:05

    the stuff at the bottom of the toliets are worth more than these losers

  • Justin Schonegevel - 2011-04-29 14:05

    Did the ANC not watch SABC 1 last night, Grahamstown still using the Bucket system, talk about dignity.

  • Gorilla - 2011-04-29 14:09

    "...As a heavy drizzle began to fall around 11:00..." Just wondering but isn't "heavy drizzle" Rain?

  • Happy-go-lucky - 2011-04-29 14:37

    Take a read here guys...i dont think its real...but maybe its something that we should ACTUALLY adopt...its the first story "Shoot the Politician"

  • Madelane - 2011-04-29 15:16

    Are the ANCYL and Malema specifically going to be charged with destruction of council property? It was no doubt his organisations directive to destroy the enclosures that had been erected after all.

  • Simpiwe Cele - 2011-04-29 19:37

    Hey Tony , is it that the DA didn't want you ? Did you have to join the ANC , come on man why associate with a bunch of incompetent looser's ?

  • Dave Benoni - 2011-04-29 23:21

    Two bags of shite in the same place. WHO SAYS LIGHTNING DOES NOT STRIKE IN THE SAME PLACE TWICE

  • Dave Benoni - 2011-04-29 23:27

    Now that the shithouse issue has been sorted, where do the residents go to get toilet tissue? Everything else is for free, why not bum wipe??
