500 members of the Seskhona People’s Movement have ditched the ANC and moved to endorse the Democratic Alliance.
One of these defectors is Loyiso Nkohla, Seshkona's Secretary-General, well known for being at the centre of the infamous "poo protests" when he and 8 other members were convicted of dumping human waste in the Cape Town International Airport and on the steps of the provincial legislature.
The group was introduced by Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille at an official endorsement-ceremony in Khayelitsha earlier today.
Loyiso Nkohla will not be able to join the DA as a member until such stage as his own legal matters have been resolved. He is endorsing us.— Patricia de Lille (@PatriciaDeLille) June 23, 2016
