So...the next SABC board is going to be "pro freedom of expression" ?
And candidates were asked how they would "rebuild the reputation" of The SABC ? This is the sort of "western / racist / Blairist / Bushist / pro-apartheid / anti-democratic etc" language that really upsets The Blacklisted Dictator.
As if Mpofu and Zikalala had not made The SABC the envy of Mugabe's world.

Parliament’s portfolio committee on communications will submit its recommended list of candidates for the new SABC board next week.
The committee members have interviewed 37 candidates on a variety of issues, including their stance on press freedom. Deliberations on the final list of 12 will start on Tuesday, be presented to Parliament on Thursday and sent to President Thabo Mbeki for approval thereafter.
Among the people interviewed are Professor Adam Habib of the Human Sciences Research Council, journalist Zubeida Jaffer, current board member Christine Qunta, former SABC radio news head Pippa Green and former Speaker of Parliament Frene Ginwala .
Communications portfolio committee chairman Godfrey Oliphant said the board members “would be chosen for being pro-press freedom and pro- freedom of expression, the values important in a democracy”.
Candidates were asked for a short analysis of the problems at the SABC and how they would rebuild the reputation of the public broadcaster.
