SANEF and CFE call for disciplinary action against SABC News Head to be open process

December 7, 2021

The South African National Editors’ Forum (SANEF) and the Campaign for Free Expression (CFE) are calling for the disciplinary action against SABC News Head Phathiswa Magopeni to take place openly and transparently.

Magopeni has been charged with negligence and bringing the SABC into disrepute after it broadcast a Special Assignment episode, in contravention of a court order.

Magopeni alleges that she is being targeted because she resisted attempts by the SABC Board chairperson and Group CEO to force her to carry an unscheduled interview with ANC President Cyril Ramaphosa during the recent elections.
