Airports Company South Afirca (Acsa) head of communications, Debrah Francis confirmed a car had made its way up the passenger drop-and-go ramp, where a group of protesters jumped out to throw a bucket load of human waste and raw sewerage at the entrance of the International Airport, before speeding off again.
"The police have since caught the protesters. They have demarcated the area, which is being investigated. Once they have finished, cleaners will clear the affected area. Operations have not been affected and passengers making their way to Cape Town International Airport should not be concerned about delays,"said Francis.
In a similar incident, Western Cape Premier and leader of the DA, Helen Zille recently had raw sewerage thrown at her bus in Khayelitsha by ANC members of the Youth League. This was done in protest of residents being given portable toilets instead of flushing ones. Francis could not confirm if the incidents were related.
"You would need to confirm that with the police," she said.
