OUTA hoped that the new Minister would restore the public’s confidence in the communications industry, however, she is apparently perpetuating the pattern of political meddling that was synonymous with the previous administration.
“It appears that the ANC wants control over the SABC ahead of next year’s elections which will further compromise the integrity of the SABC and deny the public access to unbiased information. We have seen this episode before and encourage the Minister to revaluate her stance to intervene in decisions aimed at improving the financial stability of the SABC,” said Duvenage.
