Cape Town - ANC councillor Loyiso Nkohla has been expelled from the party following his involvement in faeces-dumping protests.

Nkohla and former City of Cape Town councillor Andile Lili were charged with, among others, bringing the African National Congress into disrepute. They led protesters to dump faeces on the steps of the Western Cape legislature and at Cape Town International Airport last year.

Prior to Monday's ruling by the Dullah Omar regional disciplinary committee, Nkohla was serving out a three-year suspension from the party after he disrupted an ANC event in Cape Town where President Jacob Zuma was speaking.

"After his previous suspension, he failed to rehabilitate himself," committee chair Faizel Moosa said.

Lili's membership was suspended for in effect one year on similar charges.

"In view of the fact that he's a first-time offender, our view is that he be given another chance," Moosa said.

Lili was given a suspended three-year sentence, disqualifying him from participating in ANC activities for one year.

Both men have 21 days to lodge appeals against their sentences.

Lili was given his marching orders by the City of Cape Town in March last year after a multi-party disciplinary committee found him guilty on charges related to the illegal demolition of houses. The council this year recommended that Nkohla be fired.
