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.

No mention of 13th cheques. Hope that none will be paid.
