The Democratic Alliance says government's plan to use advertising as a means of rewarding publications for favourable reporting is a gross abuse of power.

Government spokesperson, Jimmy Manyi, hinted at the plan Thursday.

This was after his department took control of government’s one-billion-Rand advertising budget.

The DA’s Natasha Michael says it is clear that the ruling party wants to turn the free media into a propaganda outlet.
