The Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) has requested Paliament’s urgent intervention in “a growing crisis at the SABC that appears to be spiralling out of control.”
In a letter to the Speaker of the National Assembly, Thandi Modise Chief Whip Narend Singh moved for an urgent debate in Parliament to discuss what it called a “SABC Board at odds with itself” and “imminent retrenchments of hundreds of staff”.
The letter, dated 20 November 2020 seen by BEMAWU, has invoked Rule 130 (1) that deals with urgent matters of national importance.
BEMAWU is calling on all political parties to follow suit.
