BREAKING: ANC demands meeting with communications minister, SABC board

05 July 2016, 21:29 Lizeka Tandwa, News24

Johannesburg - The African National Congress has summoned Communications Minister Faith Muthambe and the SABC board to explain the recent censorship concerns at the public broadcaster.

She and the board are expected to brief the ruling party on Monday.

The announcement was made at an ANC press briefing on Tuesday, which was addressed by the chairperson of the ANC National Executive Committee's sub-committee on communications, Jackson Mthembu.

The press conference was called to discuss press freedom and the SABC.

READ: Another SABC picket on the cards

The SABC and its chief operating officer, Hlaudi Motsoeneng, have recently come under fire for choosing not to televise violent protests.

On Friday morning, journalists from several media outlets picketed outside the SABC’s offices in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town in support of three journalists who were served with disciplinary letters last week, and against Motsoeneng's censorship of the news.

The three journalists had disagreed with an instruction during a diary conference not to cover a Right2Know protest against censorship at the public broadcaster earlier that week.

This followed the suspension of three other employees at the broadcaster.
