South African Broadcasters Ordered to Stop Reports Which Make President Zuma Look Bad or Short

South African state broadcasting company SABC has been ordered not to report negative coverage of President Jacob Zuma.


INDEPENDENT UK reports that the order was reportedly given by Hlaudi Motsoeneng, controversial Chief Operation Officer (COO) of SABC and President Zuma confidante, who also told the company’s camera crew they needed retraining because they “make him look shorter” than he really is.

The South African National Editors Forum has called on SABC leadership to reverse its policies to censor the news.
