NPA to investigate torn-down #ZumaMustFall banner

The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) will investigate the parties involved in erecting a massive banner reading 'Zuma Must Fall' in Cape Town on Friday.

EWN Reporter Rahima Essop on Monday said that ANC and SACP supporters tore the controversial poster apart at the weekend.

According to Essop, chaos erupted after the supporters caused commotion chasing after a man hurling insults their way.

Listen to the full conversation from The Midday Report with Stephen Grootes:
