One should expect Mkhonza and her colleagues (on the SABC board) to be axed after a vote of no confidence in them was passed by the ANC through parliament's communication portfolio.

After the success of "Operation Cleansing" in the ANC, sweeping away Thabo Mbeki loyalists in favour of Jacob Zuma's army, the focus has now shifted to the government mouthpiece or, as the Zuma loyalists might call it, Thabo Mbeki's mouthpiece, the SABC.

One should therefore expect drastic changes within SABC channels, The SABC1 slogan, for instance, is likely to change in order to reflect changes in the ruling ANC.
