SABC explains decision to halt broadcasts of violent protests

SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago explains why the public broadcaster will no longer broadcast footage of violent protests.

CAPE TOWN - The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has taken the decision to no longer publicise content displaying violent service delivery protests in various parts of the country.

Spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago, talking to Kieno Kammies on Cape Talk, says by not showing footage of protesters vandalising state property, the SABC will be able to decrease the number of violent protests.

But Kganyago says reporters will still be deployed to cover the violent protests.
