SABC board tensions over pre-Parliament meetings with ANC

Tension is brewing in the SABC regarding so-called "study group" meetings with ANC MPs preceding its board and management's appearances before Parliament, Sunday Times reports.

The publication said there had been a "long-standing tradition" that the ANC demanded government and other officials meet with its MPs ahead of portfolio committee presentations to "massage" their feedback.
 
If the DA was going to burn any flags, they should have rather burnt the ANC flag. Burning the South African flag is just not cool, especially with our history. We are really trying as citizens of this beautiful country, we don’t need politicians with self interests taking us backwards
 
“Our country’s flag is a sacred symbol in our national life" is quite true, but when the nation is literally burning, it does sort of seem apt... Regardless though, these types of meetings should especially not be happening just before a national election.
 
Queue the Streisand effect: Everyone go post the ad to social media with hashtag censorship.

Trying how exactly? Running off every 5 years to make a mark for the same stupid politicians isn't exactly trying now is it? :unsure:

Trying to get along in the interim even with our differences in opinion and political affiliations.
