JOHANNESBURG - The Independent Communications Authority of SA (Icasa) has upheld the SABC&39;s banning of the DA&39;s Ayisafani advert.

The SAPS had complained that the advert contains a photo of a police officer firing rubber bullets.

The SABC banned the advertisement because it said it incited violence.

Icasa says the offending part of the advert must be removed.

The DA&39;s Gauteng Premier candidate, Mmusi Maimane, spoke to News Night&39;s Jeremy Maggs, and said the opposition party will review the ruling.
