Mysterious billboards mock ANC and tolls – report

Three massive billboards mocking the ruling ANC and e-tolls have been anonymously erected on Johannesburg highways.

A billboard seen along the N1 North between 14th Avenue and Beyers Naude Drive, 4 October 2013. The billboard reads: "E-tolls. Proudly brought to you by the ANC." Picture: Michel Bega

The billboards state: “E-tolls. Proudly brought to you by the ANC.”

The structures are owned by outdoor media company vanTill Outdoor, but it would not divulge who the client is, saying a confidentiality agreement had been signed.

ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu told the newspaper: “I can tell you it is definitely not us that is behind the billboards. The ANC would have branded it with the logo and ANC colours if it was us.”

The billboards have been erected on the N3 and N1 highways, The New Age reported on Friday.
