The Ugly Truth:

October 19 1977 – South Africa’s Apartheid government bans several local newspapers for publishing news articles about the beating and murder of Steve Biko at the hands of the police… the ANC protested this violently.

Nelson Mandela in 1997: “Press Freedom will never be a threat as long as the ANC is the majority party”

November 22 2011 – South Africa’s ANC government passes the Protection of Information Bill allowing the incarceration (for up to 25 years) and banning of any journalist or entity that makes public information about the corrupt nature or actions of members of government.

The reality that we are faced in South Africa at the moment.
