SABC Day Zero could happen tomorrow

SABC chief financial officer, Yolandi van Biljon warned that Day Zero, which can lead to a total blackout, can happen “tomorrow” if their biggest debtors stop supporting them.

The SABC is facing a serious financial crisis which forced it to make a difficult decision at the end of May – pay salaries or pay municipal bills.

Brilliant news I hope SA Inc grows a bakbone and demand their money tomorrow.

Let the SABC close shop and jail the ones responsible.

Not going to happen, they're just being alarmist to drum sympathy for a bailout. Why would they allow a blackout when they refused to allow them to retrench staff to ensure sustainability.

Dear SABC, when Eskom threatens with a blackout people pay up, when you threaten with a blackout people cheer.
Please re-think the wording of how you beg for more money to feed your corruption and mismanagement.
Its the right thing to do.

It's good in the sense that this hastens the eventual downfall of these money sucking parasites. Hopefully this "new ANC" will have the sense to cauterise these blood lettings...

Enough. Already. Of. Your. Rhetoric. Go extinct and end your ‘service’.

Its not good for anyone you damn fool. Its likely to happen all over. And its likely to lead to more of your taxes to bail them out.

Good? What a fking moron
If it closes, no further bailouts needed, that is what is good.
