Calls for SABC head of news Phatiswa Magopeni’s disciplinary hearing to be open to the media

December 7, 2021

The South African National Editors’ Forum (Sanef) and the Campaign for Free Expression (CFE) want SABC head of news Phathiswa Magopeni’s disciplinary hearing to be open to the media.

Lawyers for SANEF and CFE wrote to the chair of the hearing, advocate Nazeer Cassim, to ask that the media be allowed to attend the proceedings.

Cassim had asked the Sanef and CFE legal team to argue the case for openness when the hearing begins on 17 December.

The SABC refused a Sanef request to open the hearings.
