The Chairperson of the SABC Board of Control, Dr Ivy Matsepe-Casaburri, nominated herself for re-appointment to the board in 1996 when the term of office of the previous one came to an end.
She subsequently phoned the office of the Minister for Broadcasting to make sure that they had in fact received her nomination.
Dr Matsepe-Casaburri was not appointed to the new SABC Board, having been "redeployed" by the ANC when she was appointed premier of the Free State.
Olefile Samuel Mnqibisa, a former MK soldier testifies before the TRC about the human rights abuses he and other suffered at the hand of Snuki Zikalala.
As a result of a promise by Zikalala that he would testify before the TRC to rebut these allegations, Max du Preez does not broadcast Mnqibisa’s testimony. Zikalala, clearly at the behest of factions within the ANC starts broadcasting blatantly false allegations which seek to implicate businessman Saki Macozoma in criminal dealings and without contacting Macozoma for his side of the story.
Macozoma takes the matter to the BCCSA which finds in his favour and orders the SABC to broadcast an apology and correction.
In his book, The SABC announces that its new group chief executive, Rev Hawu Mbatha, would take over from Zwelakhe Sisulu at the end of the month.
As the major information source, the SABC in its current form misuses its position to skew public perceptions.The result is that during this crucial transition period we have a public subjected to misinformation and disinformation because of narrow party political manipulation.If the SABC is to play a constructive role ahead of our country’s first experience with democracy, informing the electorate rather than attempting to persuade them to vote for a particular political party, it is necessary to replace those who currently control the SABC with others who are committed to democracy and to an electorate empowered by accurate and impartial information.And we want to establish both the principle and practice of that independence now.
The ANC is committed to public broadcasting which is independent of the government of the day, and which owes its loyalty not to any party, but to the population as a whole.
A report in the on 5 May said that his appointment had stunned many as Mbatha had trounced favourites who had applied, like SABC programme director Mandla Langa, Sisulu's deputy Govin Reddy and well known academic Professor Njabulo Ndebele. This is covered in depth in a subsequent book by Du Preez, The South African Telecommunications Authority (SATRA) issues a press release accusing Zikalala of blatantly false reporting.
