DA to seek interdict if ad is not flighted

2014-04-30 15:51

Johannesburg - The Democratic Alliance will seek an urgent high court interdict if the SABC does not flight its second television advert, party leader Helen Zille said on Wednesday.

The advert was supposed to be aired on Wednesday morning, but was not.

"The next slot for the advert is tonight at 21:00 on SABC2. The proof that it was banned is because it did not air on the slot this morning."

However, MarkLives reports,  the SABC's head group communications, Kaizer Kganyago, has  denied that the national broadcaster will not be flighting the ad.

Zille told journalists in Milpark, Johannesburg, that the DA had received an e-mail from the SABC’s head of broadcast compliance, Fakir Hassen, saying the public broadcaster would not allow the advert to be flighted as its opening line was false.

The opening line of the 46-second advert, which has received more than 47 000 hits on YouTube, says: “So they tried to silence us …”

She said the DA was consulting its lawyers and would file an urgent application on Thursday morning if the advert was not flighted at its allocated time on Wednesday night.
