How to save the SABC
Patrick Kikine KwaZulu-Natal
Government must rescue the SABC from this situation, and a proper board must be appointed and the current management reshuffled.

The SABC has allowed itself to become enmeshed in trivial politics rather than catering to the needs of those who watch television and listen to the radio.
South Africans are crazy about sport, but all that we have access to on SABC is a few mediocre soccer games. One is forced to pay exorbitant fees to watch our people playing locally and internationally, even in the popular sports.
Find a way to stop DStv’s monopoly on sporting events and you’ll lure your viewers back! I don’t own a TV any more – SABC is putrid and DStv costs too much.

In my opinion, 90% of local content shown on SABC3 is rubbish and an insult to the viewers, which is why no one watches. Get decent shows from overseas and then advertisers and viewers will return. If not, the SABC should cease to operate.
The SABC must be put into business rescue. Objective professionals must draw up a plan on how to save it. Further politicising will not help.
