Busi­ness and pol­i­tics clash most of the time. The SABC must make a profit in or­der to sur­vive. It must con­tinue to meet its obli­ga­tions. Bailouts of state-owned en­ter­prises is the fail­ure of gov­ern­ment. The board is right if they man­age to turn the SABC around.

I think the minister is un­der­min­ing the board and scor­ing “cheap” political points. She should be fa­mil­iar with the strat­egy of the board and its chal­lenges, tak­ing into ac­count the years she spent as the deputy minister in the same port­fo­lio.

I be­lieve the minister’s ap­proach will not as­sist the board to fi­nan­cially sta­bilise the SABC. I agree that the re­trench­ment is­sue is of na­tional in­ter­est, but it should not be used as an elec­tion strat­egy. This is one of the many rea­sons that led to the prob­lems the SABC is faced with.

The paral­ysed ANC needs a paral­ysed SABC. They al­lowed a group of or­di­nary thugs to run amok at the pub­lic broad­caster and they now want to lull us into think­ing they all of a sud­den want to save it.

“ANC spokesper­son Pule Mabe de­nied the party had any strat­egy to col­lapse the SABC board, say­ing: “That is a sheer fig­ment of the imag­i­na­tion.”

Yeah right. The ANC is al­ways in­ter­fer­ing in or­der to ad­vance its so­cial­ist ten­den­cies.
