JOHANNESBURG - South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Chief Operating Officer (COO) Hlaudi Motsoeneng says he won't apologise for the decisions he is making at the public broadcaster.

Motsoeneng was speaking at a debate with a number of media organisations in Pretoria this evening.

Last month, the SABC announced it will no longer show property being destroyed during service delivery protests.

Motsoeneng claims he can count those against the move on both hands.

"We're not apologetic about what is happening at the SABC and people who are complaining are in the minority, those who are raising concerns are not more than 10."

He says those who accuse him of censoring his journalists are in fact censoring good news in the country.

"I want to challenge you to go there and lodge that complain and I can assure you that you won't make it."
