Johannesburg - A complaint by the SAPS regarding a DA election advert that contains a photo of a police officer shooting rubber bullets was upheld by the Independent Communications Authority of SA on Friday.

“The election period tends to bring about a lot of volitility. The police should not be seen as a threat to the community,” chairman of Icasa's complaints and compliance committee Wandile Tutani said in Johannesburg.

“The offending part of the advert (must) be excised. That is our decision.”
