Who banned it? From where?

I love the ad banners popping up in Joburg that say things like "E-tolls: proudly brought to you by the ANC". Cheeky!

Banned by the ANC no doubt because it's true. So much for the freedom of speech.

Has anyone noticed or said anything about the fact that the South African constitution does not allow for a president to server more than two consecutive terms in office. I guess the ANC and specifically Shower Head are hoping that no one notices and if they do I guess the ANC will change the constitution before anyone can say anything.

Banned why?

SABC - see http://www.channel24.co.za/Gossip/News/SABC-bans-political-TV-ad-critical-of-ANC-20140411

Reasons:

The SABC claims the TV commercial "incites violence". The SABC says it is the public broadcaster's view that the TV commercial "advertising to police killing our people is cause for incitement to action against the police services".

The SABC also says the ad is false. The SABC says the Nkandlagate scandal "has not yet been tested and confirmed in a court of law".

The SABC also says "the Code of Advertising Standards of South Africa (ASA) does not permit attacking another product to promote your own".

The SABC says it banned the political TV commercial because the SABC "will not permit personal attacks on any party member or leader by any other party, as is being done in your advertisement in respect of President Jacob Zuma".

The SABC says that as a public broadcaster "we do not have any concern about generic statements regarding matters such as corruption or service delivery but do not believe that is correct to pin such issues on any specific person, whether the preside tor anyone else".
