SABC’S contributing editor Vuyo Mvoko and others have been fired by the SABC and others still suspended.
This follows the filing of an urgent application to the Constitutional Court to have their charges declared unlawful, last week.
Other colleagues Thandeka Gqubule‚ Busisiwe Ntuli, Lukhanyo Calata, Krivani Pillay‚ Jacques Steenkamp‚ Foeta Krige and Suna Venter, better known as “SABC8” had taken the public broadcaster to task, following concerns on not screening visuals of violent protests.
Mvoko made headlines when he and colleagues, were mugged during live broadcast early this year by four assailants, near Milpark Hospital- Jozi.
Solidarity is to apply to the Labour Court on Thursday for an urgent interdict to have their suspensions set aside.
COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng and his board are unison that the decision not to broadcast violent protests is part of broadcasters’ mandate.
