EEF refused SABC to change the Advert

The EFF and its leader President Julius Sello Malema took a march to the SABC in Johannesburg yesterday. The protest was against the SABC “ban” on showing its election advertisement, the party said.

EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi said the march started at 10: 00 to the public broadcaster’s offices in Auckland Park.

On Saturday, the Independent Communication Authority of SA’s (ICASA) compliance committee rule for the SABC by upholding the broadcaster’s decision not to flight the EFF’s advert.

“The CCC ruled that the advert may be perceived to unethical acts, in which it talks about the destroying of e-tolls which would be perceived as damage to property,” ICASA spokesperson Paseka Maleka said.

On weekend, EFF leader Julius Malema said at an election rally in Durban that he considered the SABC’s actions as an example of how SA’s were not free to express themselves.

The advert, mostly in black and white, is entitled “now is the time for economic freedom” and was also posted on your Tube.

The section in contention is a slogan at the end: “destroy e-tolls physically”.

SABC SPOKESPERSON Kaizer Kganyago said on weekend that the SABC rejected the their advert because it contravened section 4(12)(b) of Icasa’s regulations on party election broadcasts (PEB) in that the advert contained word which were likely to provoke or incite unlawful illegal or criminal acts. He said.
