When you think of the word “Reign of Terror” what images spring to mind?
The French Revolution, Nazi Germany and The Holocaust? Or do you think
of some of the world’s most notorious dictators like Joseph Stalin, Saddam
Hussein, Idi Amin, or dare we say it, Robert Mugabe?
What about a reign of terror, which is currently playing itself out much closer to
home? The SABC’s Chief Operating Officer, Hlaudi Motsoeneng, is once again
back in the broadcasting spotlight for all of the wrong reasons.
Today the ANC top brass will meet at Luthuli House to discuss how to get the
SABC out of its crisis mode. Will this discussion include the fate of Motsoeneng
and the current SABC board’s future, or will we once again see, communications
minister, Faith Muthambi protecting him?
