Published by OSFJournalism
This report analyses the crises that have afflicted the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) since 1994. Libby Lloyd, a media and broadcasting consultant based in Johannesburg, Jane Duncan, professor of Media and Information Society at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, Jeanette Minnie, an international freedom of expression and media consultant, and the editor-in-chief of AfriMAP's broadcast media project, Hendrik Bussiek, argue that these crises have served to open up the debate on the public broadcaster generally and created the chance for a thorough review of the entire public broadcasting legislation as well as the organisational structures of the SABC. The report delves into challenges of a post apartheid South Africa, where inequality of access to media and its ownership are still prevalent today; other issues include threats to media freedom and democracy due to weak mechanisms on the access to information; and South Africa’s ability to implement with a promised digital migration.
