JOHANNESBURG - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela says her office is in the process of writing a letter to the communications minister and the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) board to discuss the latest developments at the broadcaster.

The corporation has made headlines after banning the broadcast of visuals of violent protests and the suspension of employees who had objected to the move, among other things.

Madonsela confirmed to Eyewitness News that her office has been asked to investigate the SABC.

On Friday, several prominent organisations including the Thabo Mbeki Foundation, Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation and the FW de Klerk Foundation, called on President Jacob Zuma to constitute a judicial commission to deal with issues at the SABC.

Now, Madonsela says the investigation is underway.

"The investigation has started to find out what is happening in terms of governance, alleged governance failure."

ANC chairperson of the sub-committee on communication, Jackson Mthembu, has confirmed the committee will meet with Communications Minister Faith Muthambi to seek answers on developments at the public broadcaster.
