‘Zuma Must Fall’ billboard was erected by a repeat offender
The City of CT says the person responsible for the banner has contravened a specific by-law before.
CAPE TOWN - It's emerged the person responsible for putting up an illegal 'Zuma Must Fall' billboard on the intersection of Long and Kloof streets in Cape Town is a repeat offender.
The city says the individual could face a charge after the municipality referred the matter to the National Prosecuting Authority.
It says the large piece of advertisin g violates the city's outdoor advertising and signage by-law and was not approved, as is required by the National Building Regulations and Standards Act.
The City of Cape Town's Priya Reddy says, "It was erected by a private party. We also know that this person has done this before, also in contravention of the by-law and so we want to ensure he faces the full might of the law."
Reddy says the decision to remove the poster will be decided by the NPA.
