Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

THE SABC was hop­ing to know by late last night whether it would broad­cast the Africa Cup of Na­tions tour­na­ment which starts in An­gola to­mor­row, the state broad­caster said.

Spokesman Kaizer Kganyago said the SABC had sent a team of ne­go­tia­tors to France in a bid to find per­mis­sion from SportFive – the rights agent for the Con­fed­er­a­tion of African Foot­ball – to broad­cast the tour­na­ment.

“At the mo­ment we have our peo­ple ne­go­ti­at­ing with SportFive... We are hop­ing to get feed­back by tonight,” said Kganyago. The SABC, he said was ready to broad­cast the event as it started pre­par­ing for it a year ago. – Sapa
