The IEC has confirmed a complaint from the ANC about the Democratic Alliance’s billboard, showing the names of Esidimeni victims.
IEC CEO Sy Mamabolo said, “the electoral framework does provide for prohibited conduct which is intended to create a climate where an election happens… we now have the ANC’s formal complaint, we will evaluate the complaint.”
“The commission will take a decision whether to pursue the matter with the electoral court or any other judicial forum as may be appropriate.”
The DA’s Makashule Gana said, “the poster will remain up and the party leadership will make a decision as to when it will be taken down. No one can argue with the fact that the ANC is killing us and is indeed killing South Africa.”
