DA to lay criminal complaint against Faith Muthambi for misleading parliament
Muthambi's interference in the SABC's editorial decisions ‘includes how she insisted that her constituency work for the ANC be covered’, DA's Phumzile van Damme says
Former communications minister Faith Muthambi is set to face criminal charges after the release of the SABC's report on editorial interference at the public broadcaster. The report‚ released on Monday‚ implicates several staff members and government officials.
A commission of inquiry set up in May 2018 found that Muthambi and former board chair Ellen Tshabalala interfered in decision-making in the broadcaster's newsrooms.
