The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has denied allegations of blacklisting between 2005 and 2006 at an Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) hearing.
The denial is contrary to the findings of the Sisulu Commission of Inquiry, which was appointed by the SABC to investigate claims that certain commentators were banned from SABC programmes by news head, Snuki Zikalala.
Meanwhile, about 30 employees in the SABC’s marketing and sales divisions staged a sit-in outside the acting CEO's office. According to the Communications Workers' Union spokesperson, Karthi Pillay, these employees were demanding that certain managers be removed over allegations of nepotism, favouritism and wasteful expenditure.
