Cape Town - ANC Western Cape executive committee member Andile Lili is expected to appear in a Cape Town court on Wednesday on charges of inciting violence.

He was arrested on Wednesday, July 29, for his statements that criminals should be "killed immediately and brutally".

He will appear in the Bellville Magistrate's Court.

Lili, also a leader of the Ses'khona People's Rights Movement, made the statement outside the Bellville Magistrate’s Court.

He was addressing a crowd of supporters after a case against him and eight others was postponed.

Lili and the others were found guilty of contravening the Civil Aviation Act in February for throwing faeces at Cape Town International Airport.

The incident, which happened in June 2013, was aimed at highlighting poor sanitation in informal settlements.

Following the postponement, Lili said he was not satisfied with the country’s justice system.

“Sometimes [criminals] are arrested... but the justice system releases them. So the only thing we can do is to kill immediately if we find a criminal. 

“We must kill them, comrades! We are liberating ourselves from criminals. Police are trying, but the justice system is failing us.

“If they are raping, you must kill them immediately. If they are stealing, we must kill them immediately. And we must kill them brutally, the same way that they are [hurting] our sisters, our mothers and our parents.”
