MMA Pushes for More Time for Broadcasting Bill

Media Monitoring Africa launches a campaign calling for the public to petition the Department of Communications to allow more time to comment on the Public Service Broadcast Bill

Media Monitoring Africa (MMA) has launched a campaign on its website calling for the public to petition the director- general of the Department of Communications, Mamodupi Mohlala, to allow more time to comment on the controversial Public Service Broadcast Bill.

MMA director, William Bird, says that, “The bill proposes a number of fundamental changes to the public service broadcasting and community media environment and, based on this, MMA and the Save Our SABC Coalition argue that it will be in the interests of all affected by it to take the time necessary to debate, discuss, research and address the various proposals included in it.

MMA and other stakeholders want the public to have until March next year to send in their submissions.
