SABC given short shrift: iLive
S'THEMBISO Msomi's column "Shiny suits wreak havoc" (yesterday) seems to ignore the fact that the "Road to Mangaung" discussion was actually broadcast - albeit in a slightly different format - on Monday.
While the original cancellation of the broadcast generated extensive press coverage, the apparent relenting by the SABC has received no coverage at all.
In passing, I feel the accompanying Zapiro cartoon is a little unkind: the presenter, Sakina Kamwendo, while frequently supporting the ANC viewpoint, is by no means the uncritical puppet displayed.
By SABC standards, she is frequently a most outspoken commentator on current affairs.
