‘Zuma Must fall’ banner: City of CT focusses on body corporate
The city has given the Overbeek Body Corporate three days to remove the signage structure.
CAPE TOWN - City of Cape Town officials have now turned their attention to the body corporate of an apartment block at the centre of a billboard controversy.
The city has given the Overbeek Body Corporate three days to remove the signage structure, attached to the side of the building, or face prosecution for violating a city by-law.
The building has long been used as a prime advertising spot, but the unveiling of a ' Zuma Must Fall' banner last week has put everyone involved in erecting the signage on a collision course with city officials.
The banner was torn down by African National Congress supporters on Saturday; the South African flag went up in its place yesterday.

City spokesperson Priya Reddy said, "I would say that this is a continuing offence, something that the city has been dealing with for many years, and we will continue to follow due process until this matter has been resolved."
