Media Monitoring Africa director William Bird said the SABC’s current coverage of the protest in Tshwane was evidence of the effect of a “dangerous and profoundly offensive decision”.

Bird said through its coverage on Monday night, the SABC first ignored the story, and then covered it without showing any images relating to it. He said the SABC should have offered more in-depth coverage.
