Mboweni under fire for SABC comments

SABC Digital News | a week ago

Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has come under heavy criticism for describing the SABC as the implementing tool for the Communications Department.

This is contained in a letter where National Treasury says it cannot grant a 3-point -2 billion rand guarantee sought by the public broadcaster. The letter is dated the 25th of June, a week before Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams appeared before Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Communications.

The Democratic Alliance says Ndabeni-Abrahams misled Parliament as she already knew then that Mboweni had rejected the bailout.
