The African National Congress says it distance itself from a photo being circulated by email of an ANC billboard digitally altered with a crude and offensive message.
In a statement ANC media liaison officer Brian Sokutu says the message which encourages political intolerance and threatens violence against women is deeply offensive to all South Africans.
Sokutu says the ANC has consistently opposed gender based violence and all other forms of abuse.
“The ANC says it supports the democratic right of all people to vote for a party of their choice”, says Sokutu.
