War Piper 4 Mighty Men, James Mc Gowan, aka Piperjames, in full cry outside a court where a Chinese national charged with illegal possession of ivory applied for bail yesterday. Piperjames was part of a group of about 20 people who chanted “Jail, no bail!” to demonstrate their opposition to the wanton slaughter of rhinos and elephants in South Africa. Some court security officials joined the protesters, as Piperjames, spattered with artificial blood, piped through a Springbok stuffed toy which he said symbolised South Africa’s beautiful wildlife mourning the murder of their kind. The War Piper also prayed that the right decision would be made. The prayer was effective, he said, as the accused, Xing Xieny, 51, was remanded in custody until February 28. His co-accused, Xiong Changsen, 41, was released on bail of R70 000 at an earlier hearing when the two appeared at the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court.
