The TV Industry Emergency Coalition (TVEC) has called on the government to immediately appoint a new ‘legally constituted (SABC) board’.
In an open letter to the South African public issued after the removal of Kanyi Mkonza as board chairman by her colleagues, the coalition says the entire current board should step down to pave the way for parliament to appoint a new independent board.
TVEC points out that, “It is not sufficient to merely shuffle the chairperson role among the incumbents. We call for the appointment of people committed to public service broadcasting, including representation from the independent TV production industry.”
