The SABC continues with its draconian labour practices which must be stopped immediately. The state broadcaster has now irrationally suspended Dineo Ranaka and Putco Mafani for participating in the popular Umlando Challenge. These radio personalities are essentially entertainers. They did nothing unethical. The SABC leadership must rather focus on the perilous state of the public broadcaster and leave the staff to continue to entertain and inform.
It is clear that the SABC lacks mature and visionary leadership. Uplift the suspensions on Putco and Dineo now! The SABC is not the Gestapo and must cease the Hitlerian management style.
The SABC has harassed Putco and Dineo for minor harmless acts but does nothing about sexual predators in its midst.
