TV1 'fo sho' on wrong track

By unknown | Apr 16, 2007 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

I am really perturbed by the new slogan imposed on viewers by SABC1 channel. Why don't you start by seeking a mandate from the poor TV licence paying South African viewers as to whether you are on the right track. I really don't enjoy watching SABC1 because I have found it to be too pro-Nguni and anti-others.

I was one of those people who enjoyed watching the Monday MTN soccer show during the Marawaraization era.

But now, because I am not conversant with the Nguni languages, I have become disillusioned because almost 50percent of his time on this programme, Walter will be using a language I don't understand and I find myself lost in the middle of nowhere.

I am just citing one example why I don't see SABC1 as being for Mzansi. Let them change their slogan to something else.

Maybe SABC2 can claim to Mzanzi for sure. "Mzanzi fo sho" in simple street language denigrates Mzansi.

Those who understand the street language will tell you that if I say something is fo sho, it mean it's a flop, if you pronounce it the way it is written.

Maybe these SABC TV channels are grouped according to certain racial lines.

SABC1 for Ngunis; SABC2 for Sotho-Venda-Tsonga and SABC3 for whites and coloureds. So no channel should claim to be for Mzansi.
