Nine Cape Town faeces dumpers to remain in custody

2013-06-28 11:10

Nine men arrested for dumping human waste at Cape Town International Airport will be detained until their bail hearing.

The state argued in the Bellville Magistrates’ Court that there was a “great possibility” the men would commit the “same or similar offences” if released, the Cape Times reported today.

Two of them, ANC councillor Loyiso Nkohla and former councillor Andile Lili, were out on a warning for a similar offence when they allegedly dumped the waste at the airport’s departures terminal on Tuesday afternoon.

According to the report, the other accused are Yanga Mjingwana, Ben Dyani, Bantu Mgobodiya, Wandesle Mkapa, Jaji Diniso, Bongile Zanazo and Thembela Mabanjwa.

They faced public violence charges, but the state said additional charges were expected.

The bail hearing would take place on Tuesday.
