ICASA ORDERS SABC TO WITHDRAW PROTEST CENSORSHIP INSTRUCTION


Earlier this year, the SABC announced it was taking the decision to promote ‘responsible journalism’.

Icasa’s Rubben Mohlaloga says the SABC must reverse the editorial decision not to broadcast violent protest footage.

“The SABC is directed to withdraw its resolution as published in its statement of 26 May 2016, which states that the SABC will no longer broadcast footage of the destruction of public property during protests.”

The SABC board has now been given seven days to write to Icasa to confirm the reversal of the controversial editorial changes.

The fate of broadcaster’s suspended employees, who face disciplinary action for challenging the editorial changes, is still unclear at this stage.

Meanwhile, a briefing is due to start at the SABC’s offices in Auckland Park.
