Poo thrower-in-chief sold himself to the highest bidder - ANC

The man who made a name for himself throwing faeces during service delivery protests against the City of Cape Town has now been employed by the City.

Loyiso Nkohla has been appointed as the 'executive support officer' to Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services.

ANC's Xolani Sotashe says not long ago he was on the other side of the fence accusing the city of suffocating the poor, and now he's working for them.

The question we are asking is what has changed because the same city administration is still running the city of Cape Town.

Sotashe says Nkohla has sold himself to the highest bidder. He says the city has used tax payers money to take Nkohla to court and that case is still ongoing.

They were suing Mr Nkohla and his colleagues saying they are ungovernable but now the same city they are working with him, It's hypocrisy at its best.
