The Department of Communications, the South African Broadcasting Cooperation (SABC) and the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) have presented strategy plans to Parliament's portfolio committee on communications to resolve outstanding issues ahead of a budget vote.
The DOC has a budget vote coming up and the portfolio committee wants to finalise their financial plans and organisational structures. But today's presentations did not go the way it had hoped. The DOC added two more branches to its structure but did not present its financial plan.
Last month, the three agencies made presentations in Parliament together with signal distributor, Sentech. However, ICASA, SABC and the department were told to go back and rework their plans.
The Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Communications has accused the SABC, ICASA, the Communications Department and Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Communications of not taking them seriously.
