Cape Town - The bail application of Ses'khona People's Rights Movement leader Andile Lili has been postponed until Friday.

Lili appeared in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Wednesday before a gallery packed with Ses'khona members. Outside the court, other supporters sang and danced, calling for Lili to be released.

Lili, also a member of the ANC's provincial executive committee, was arrested in Khayelitsha last Wednesday and charged with inciting violence.

In an affidavit read to the court by lawyer Joey Moses, Lili claimed the comments were made in response to a question posed to him by a journalist.

Last Tuesday, Lili told crowds of supporters who came to support him and nine others during their sentencing proceedings for the 2013 "poo protests", that criminals should be "killed immediately and brutally".

"Sometimes [criminals] are arrested... but the justice system releases them. So the only thing we can do is to kill immediately if we find [them]. We must kill them, comrades! We are liberating ourselves."

Prosecutor Peter Damon told the court that the State opposed bail due to the seriousness of the charge, and the fact that Lili was already out on bail.
