The African National Congress’ official website www.anc.org.za was shutdown on Friday 28 September.
A notice on the website reads “THIS WEBSITE IS SUSPENDED DUE TO NON-PAYMENT TO THE SERVICE PROVIDER”.
At 16:55 on Friday the ANC’s official Twitter handle @MYANC had not made any remarks on the apparent website shutdown.
As of Friday afternoon it is unclear if the website was legitimately shutdown due to a payment issue or if there was malicious hacking involved.
