At least 180 people have been arrested, some carrying bags of human waste, ahead of a planned protest over the lack of proper sanitation in the South African city of Cape Town.
The protesters accuse the local government, run by Ms Zille's Democratic Alliance, of not doing enough to provide proper housing and sanitation to townships.
The DA argues that it does not have the money to do this for all of the region's inhabitants.
It has provided portable toilets to some residents but the protesters say they this is not good enough.
It is the contents of these portable toilets which is being used in the protests, which local media have dubbed the "poo wars".
