SOS Coalition supports Vavi’s Open Letter to the SABC

The SOS Coalition welcomes today’s open letter to the SABC Board by the General Secretary of Cosatu, Zwelinzima Vavi. 

In his letter, comrade Vavi enumerates the series of problems that have plagued the SABC since 2007 – many of which remain unsolved.

The Coalition stands in full support of the analysis of the Communication Workers Union (CWU) and the Broadcast, Electronic Media and Allied Workers Union’s (BEMAWU), as articulated by comrade Vavi, today, on what needs to change in the SABC if it is to truly become a people’s broadcaster.
