The EFF was not as fortunate as the DA to have it’s official advert brought back to SABC channels after it took the matter to ICASA to have it unbanned by the national broadcaster. ICASA ruled against the EFF on Saturday by upholding the SABC’s decision not to air the political party’s advert.
“The CCC ruled that the advert may be perceived as condoning or lending support to unlawful acts, in that, it talks about destroying e-tolls which would be perceived as damage to property,” said Icasa spokesperson Paseka Maleka.
Not one to take anything lying down, Julius Malema is currently leading the EFF in a march to the SABC headquarters in Auckland Park, Johannesburg, to protest the decision.
A sea of EFF members and supporters wearing red t-shirts and berets gathered at Empire Road in Braamfontein and are now heading towards Auckland Park. The EFF leadership has promised that the march will be peaceful and it’s marchers will conduct themselves in an orderly manner.
