Snuki & Dali show ends

By unknown | May 08, 2008 | COMMENTS [ 0 ]

The battle for the soul of the SABC has become particularly nasty.

Not that we bemoan the unceremonious departure of the corporation's head of news, Snuki Zikalala, and chief executive, Dali Mpofu.

Theirs is a welcome departure though a permanent one would have been preferable.

The Mpofu-Zikalala militarist junta has been particularly bad for the reputation and credibility of the SABC.

The pair found the gigantic corporation on its deathbed in public broadcasting stakes. Instead of breathing life into it, they administered lethal gas, condemning the patient to a painful mercy death.

From the ashes of the public broadcaster, the two ANC factionalists - better known as Thabo Mbeki acolytes - built a well-oiled state propaganda machine used to blind the public eye.

Mpofu and Zikalala are unashamed career propagandists. They and their paymasters have abused the SABC, turning it into an instrument of thought control.

This became evident during the recent blacklisting fiasco first exposed by Sowetan.

A commission appointed by Mpofu himself confirmed that Zikalala had banned from the airwaves voices critical of Mbeki.

The revelations reverberated beyond the journalism fraternity, earning the SABC enormous scorn.

Snuki and Dali must go for the SABC to become a credible public broadcaster.
