The Kloof Street building that briefly carried the controversial 'Zuma Must Fall' banner – and now carries the South African flag – could be barred from carrying any advertising at all.
The City of Cape Town says the massive advertisement board is a safety hazard and violates the city’s outdoor advertising by-law.
The City's Priya Reddy on Thursday explained that officials had taken the defiant signage company to court on several occasions.

Certainly, it's come to people's attention now, with the last two banners that have gone up, but it is something that the City has been dealing with for many years.— Priya Reddy, City of Cape Town spokesperson
It has always been illegal. Our issue is not with the graphic or image.— Priya Reddy, City of Cape Town spokesperson
The signage structure is in contravention of our outdoor advertising and signage bylaw. It has to come down.— Priya Reddy, City of Cape Town spokesperson
