    Whilst I agree whole-heartedly that SABC under Sisulu came closest we’ve ever had in this country to public broadcasting, it is important to note all the erstwhile “defenders of the Constitution” opposed his appointment. Also, I suspect history might look kindly on the succeeding Matlare/Maphai era at that troubled institution. Ironically, all during the “controlling-paranoid” Mbeki period.

    An anecdote from Sisulu’s stewardship: he contrived to disappear during Slovo’s death and funeral just so he wouldn’t have to explain to Mandela why the SABC couldn’t provide a live broadcast! Glory days!
