The ANC is looking to conduct a full scale investigation into the company that funded the ‘Zuma must fall’ billboard that went up in Kloof Street last week.
The ANC accused the DA-led City of Cape Town of dragging its feet in taking action against the company, Independent Outdoor Media.
“The ANC wants to get to the bottom of this riddle. It is now necessary to have a proper probe to find out precisely how this media company gets its business and who deals with it. The faceless people who are behind this campaign must come to the fore and it must be established how this company obtains its contracts and how it came to lease these spaces or got the rights to use it, since this company was also embroiled in actions about the legality of various billboards or spots,” said ANC Western Cape leader, Marius Fransman.
“It must also be determined whether any space on government or state supported enterprises buildings or property is leased to this company to put up advertisements or if any state aligned advertisements is booked with this company. If there is any connection to government or the state, it should be ended without delay.”
ANC members ripped down the banner on Saturday.
