Minister Withdraws the Broadcasting Bill

Communications minister, Roy Padayachie, has withdrawn the controversial Public Service Broadcasting Bill

According to a report by Technology website, TechCentral, communications minister, Roy Padayachie, has withdrawn the controversial Public Service Broadcasting Bill which among other things, proposed a one percent tax to fund the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).

The website reports Padayachie as saying that he is convinced much more can yet be gained by engaging in further work before a bill is presented to cabinet.

Padayachie maintains that in redrafting the Bill his department must consider the developmental and democratic goals of the country, adding that for these to be best served, "It is imperative that our broadcasting policy is at the cutting edge of our digital age."
