SABC financial assistance talks to continue

SABC Digital News | 2 months ago

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

' This is contained in a letter he wrote to the Communications Minister, saying National Treasury couldn't back the R3. 2 billion guarantee needed by the public broadcaster.

The letter is dated June the 25th, a week before Communications Minister Stella Ndabeni Abrahams appeared before Parliament's Portfolio Committee, yet she made no mention of it.
