SANEF to Engage ANC on Media Freedom

by Aug 18, 2010All Articles

The South African National Editors’ Forum (SANEF) will request a meeting with the African National Congress (ANC) to have a ‘decent conversation’ about media freedom.

SANEF chairperson, Mondli Makhanya, points out that, “There seems to be a huge gulf that has developed between the ANC and the media. We want to sit down with them and a have a decent conversation.”

Makhanya, who says there is no way SANEF will ever be open to the idea of such a tribunal, adds that, “A media tribunal will be unconstitutional and totally against media freedom.”
