The African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) said that the former acting CEO, Jimi Mathews’s revelation on SABC COO, Hlaudi Motsoeneng is a means to an end for seeking employment.
Mathews’s revelation has also brought contradictions as he overturned what he said under oath, that SABC could not afford to lose Motsoeneng, to SABC is better off without its COO, Hlaudi Motsoeneng.
“These attacks are nothing but acts of cowardice.” ANCYL said in a statement.
“We want to request that SABC should not feel pressure in dealing with whoever is involved even if the person is an associate of the brother of person who use to be Head of State.”
“Yesterday (Monday) a delegation led by Zwelinzima Vavi was locked out of the broadcaster’s premises despite having a meeting scheduled with Motsoeneng.” EWN reported
Media activists outside the SABC’s premises are calling for the review of the SABC’s editorial policy.
Zwelinzima Vavi said the editorial policy is illegal hence it is the source of the problem. Therefore they must return to the editorial policy that was implemented in 2004.
later this week the Trade Union Solidarity will embark on its plan to launch constitutional court action on behalf of the suspended journalist.
