According to press release, for the first time in the Party’s history, the IFP will embark on a mass march against the public broadcaster.
For years, the IFP has continuously engaged the SABC over its anti-IFP coverage and the way in which opposition parties are not fairly represented on all of the public broadcaster’s radio and television channels.
To show how serious the matter is, its President Dr Mangosuthu Buthelezi will address marchers and present its memorandum of demands to the station’s headhonchos.
Furthermore, the party is crying foul on with anti-IFP programmes that have been aired, such as The Bang Bang Club, amonsgt others.
“This is a matter which goes to the heart of how the citizens of this country can freely make up their own minds as to whom they wish to govern them.
South Africans must demand of their public broadcaster that they be treated with respect and not force-fed and manipulated with political propaganda,” read the statement.
The march begins at 10am from Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown, JHB then proceed to SABC headquarters, Auckland Park.
Police force and other visible guards will be on hand to monitor the situation throughout the day.
SABC spin-doctor Kaizer Kganyago was not available for comment at the time of publishing.
