The State of Affairs at the SABC

The SOS Coalition is deeply concerned at the current state of affairs at the SABC. The Coalition notes with disappointment its thwarted attempts to meet its GCEO, Ms. Lulama Mokhobo. This meeting has, yet again, been rescheduled by Ms Mokhobo for the third time, the latest being this morning.

The SOS Coalition represents a number of trade unions including COSATU, COSATU affiliates CWU and CWUSA, FEDUSA, BEMAWU and MWASA; independent film and TV production sector organisations including the South African Screen Federation (SASFED); and a host of NGOs and CBOs including the Freedom of Expression Institute (FXI), Media Monitoring Africa (MMA), and the Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA-SA); as well as a number of academics and freedom of expression activists.
