must ask other animals for votes, not us, whothe white people call monkeys," one Ses'khona protester said.

The group had gathered in Keizergracht Street in CapeTown on Thursday for its march against racism in the city. President Jacob Zumawould be delivering his State of the Nation address at nearby Parliament lateron Thursday.

Earlier the group's spokesperson, Sulyman Stellenboom,had referred to Zille as a "germ from Germany".

He said that, as the mother of the city, Zille was notdelivering.

"She is not welcome here. She must go back where shecame from."

There was a high police presence in the CBD from themorning when protesters arrived in busloads.

A scuffle broke out earlier between the group and anothergroup of students representing the #RhodesMustFall campaign.

Students, accused of being members of the Pan AfricanCongress of Azania (PAC), nearly came to blows with the hundreds of Ses'khonaprotesters.

The students had been joined by members of the PAC, whocalled the ANC members of Ses'khona "bullies".

One Ses'khona member was heard telling the group:"Low-lifes like you don't intimidate the ANC."

Less than 30 students stood their ground, continuing tosing as Ses'khona marshals separated the groups. The students were alsoinvolved in a face-off with police.

The #RhodesMustFall group, which appeared not to haveauthorisation to protest, was escorted by police to the #ZumaMustFall protestin the CBD, where they said they wanted to be.

Ses'khona members handed a memorandum over to the officeof the public protector in the city. The march was then called off by thegroup's convenor, Loyiso Nkohla, who said they did not want to cause chaos.This did not meet with the approval of all the protesters.

The group dispersed, but a large contingent was seenwalking down the street towards the parliamentary precinct.

When asked where they were going, protesters said theywere "just" going to Parliament.
