Hundreds of DA supporters march through Soweto

Soweto - Hundreds of DA supporters marched through the streets of Soweto on Saturday.

Dressed in their traditional blue shirts, they sang and danced while making their way to the Jabulani sports field where they would be addressed by party leaders.

The march was in protest of the banning of the party's 'Ayisafani' advert by the SABC.

The advert in question shows the DA's Gauteng premier candidate and spokesperson Mmusi Maimane standing in front of a mirror talking about the current state of the country.

He says life today is better than it was 20 years ago and gives credit to great leaders who he believes have taken the country forward.

The SABC did not broadcast the advert and gave the DA a letter.

In it, SABC acting group CEO Tian Olivier informed the party the corporation would not be able to broadcast the advert on radio and television as it incited violence.
