SANEF to Approach Courts Over Media Freedom

SANEF expresses its outrage at the illegal clampdown on freedom of expression during the State of the Nation address in Parliament

The South African National Editors Forum (SANEF) has expressed its outrage at the illegal clampdown on freedom of expression during the State of the Nation address in Parliament on Thursday, 12 February 2015.
 
The organisation states that it plans to approach the courts and seek a meeting with President Jacob Zuma and Speaker, Baleka Mbete, as soon as possible in order to prevent similar incidents in the future.
 
In its quarterly national council meeting in Cape Town, the organisation argued that the installation of cellphone scrambling devices to block communication from inside Parliament was unprecedented and in contravention of the Electronic Communications Act.
