Port Elizabeth – The DA delivered a letter of demand to Port Elizabeth Mayor Danny Jordaan on Friday that he revoke an instruction to remove a controversial billboard put up by the party.

The billboard, which says "Danny Jordaan, proudly brought to you by Jacob Zuma," was erected in the city on Wednesday.  DA spokesperson Athol Trollip issued a statement on Friday saying the DA would head to the High Court over the matter.

"The DA contends that Danny Jordaan acted unlawfully and unjustly in removing the DA's billboard, simply because the ugly truth of the billboard is inconvenient to the ANC election campaign and to Danny Jordaan."

According to the DA, the timing of the removal of the billboard coincided with the ANC's manifesto event this weekend.

Attempts to reach Jordaan for comment were unsuccessful.
