Mpofu can run, but can't hide

I am fed up with Dali Mpofu's spin doctoring on issues that expose the SABC's cheap political propaganda.

I am fed up with Dali Mpofu's spin doctoring on issues that expose the SABC's cheap political propaganda.

The man has failed to deal with legitimate criticism.

First it was the issue of Deputy President Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka being booed at a rally that the SABC ignored, until e.tv ran the story.

Then was the canning of the President Thabo Mbeki documentary.

Now he has decided not to release the findings of the commission of inquiry into the banning of political commentators.

Lerato Mbele did not spare Mpofu, October 12, when he appeared on the SABC show In the public interest.Mpofu tried to defend the SABC.

Appallingly, he and his colleagues sought a court interdict to prevent the Mail & Guardian publishing the findings by the commission.

Yet he claimed it was in the "public interest" for the inquiry to establish the truth concerning the alleged banning of political commentators.

Mpofu said the SABC would not release the report to the public because the findings were based on "allegations made not under oath nor under cross-examination by anonymous sources".

Hogwash. I think the man is in the wrong job. I'm not paying my television licence for this nonsense from Mpofu and company.

The public wants the whole truth.
