The Freedom of Expression Institute (FXI) has renewed its efforts to have the South African Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC) articles of association amended in line with legislation and to remove government interference in the broadcaster.
The FXI believes that the articles are unlawful and unconstitutional and should be amended. The organisation says that unless this is done by the end of March 2009, it will seek a court order compelling the Minister oCommunications and the SABC to do so.
According to the FXI the unlawfulness of the articles, relates to the high level of interference from the communications minister they allow in the affairs of the SABC.
