The SABC is once again in the media spotlight after it’s acting CEO, Jimi Matthews, quit this morning by posting his letter of resignation on social media. The letter is addressed to chairman of the SABC board, Prof Maguvhe, and in it Matthews says ‘What is happening at the SABC is wrong and I can no longer be a part of it’.
Here is the full letter.
This follows several controversial decisions by the SABC recently…most notably to censor public protests on SABC news, to air 90% local content and to suspend 3 senior SABC journalists for not abiding by the new regulations.
Will keep you updated.
