Agang's posters are disappearing

AgangSA
Cape Town - Agang SA branches across the Western Cape are reporting wide spread removal of their posters from mainly coloured residential areas by unidentified parties, the party said in a statement.

According to the party a meeting with the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) Western Cape recently turned into a heated discussion when it was suggested that City of Cape Town contractors were removing party political posters with the exception of those of the Democratic Alliance.

“We cannot say who is taking our posters down, and we at this stage cannot point fingers at city contractors or anyone specific, but someone is certainly worried about the impact we are having in the Western Cape," Agang SA leader Dr Mamphela Ramphele said.

"We have taken measures to trap these culprits and will be alerting the Independent Electoral Commission and the police about this breach in the electoral code of conduct and malicious damage to property respectively."

Agang SA posters were also being removed in Kempton Park and Sandton, in Gauteng, says Ramphele, but on a smaller scale. Agang SA in the Eastern Cape has also seen some of its posters removed, the statement said.

According to Ramphele the fact that these actions have occurred over the last week in three different provinces, with essentially the same voter demographic in each, could suggest a coordinated action by one party.
