Media Monitoring Africa (MMA) has formally lodged a complaint against the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC)’s ban on pictures of violent protests with the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa). In its legal papers MMA says the ban makes no sense as it only deals with the destruction of state property and not government property, and that violent protests would still receive publicity.
