Cape Town - The return of Andile Lili and Loyiso Nkohla to the ANC will strengthen the party ahead of the May 7 election, the SA Communist Party said on Tuesday.

SACP Brian Bunting district secretary Benson Ngqentsu said the unity of the party was key to "liberating" the working class and the poor.

Lili and Nkohla's re-instatement into the African National Congress was announced by the provincial disciplinary committee on Monday.

Nkohla was expelled from the party following his involvement in last year's dumping of human faeces during protests in Cape Town.

The charges against Nkohla and Lili, a former City of Cape Town councillor, included bringing the ANC into disrepute.

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

Nkohla and Lili led protesters in dumping faeces on the steps of the Western Cape legislature and at Cape Town International Airport last year.

"We will never keep quiet when there is an attempt to silence those who are advancing the struggle of the working class," Ngqentsu said.

"Hence our view remains that discipline is meant to rehabilitate those who transgress the rules, not to victimise opponents and settle political scores."

On Monday, provincial disciplinary committee chairperson Fezile Calana said the party decided to uphold the appeal based on technical flaws in the regional disciplinary committee's (RDC) proceedings.

The RDC had contravened the ANC constitution by exceeding time limits set for certain processes.
