In the light of recent comments about the banned Mbeki documentary, don't you think that The FXI / PSC should be publicly demanding, loudly and clearly, that Snuki Zikalala be immediately sacked ?
For the record you should now reveal whether are you both members of The ANC. I am concerned that when push comes to shove, your political allegiances might have discouraged The FXI / PSC from demanding Snuki's dismissal.

Oh stop being a little child!
Can you not read? Were you not at the protest outside the SABC? Did you not hear the
speeches and the slogans? Do you not know that even many ANC members want Snuki's
head? Don't be a naïve fool!
Not that it's any of your business whatsoever, but since you asked so nicely: No, I am not an
ANC member. Have never been.
Oh, and btw, you should check how many members of the South African Jewish Board of
Deputies are members of the ANC. According to your dumb (il)logic, you should be asking:
why is the SAJBD meeting with Snuki Zikalala? Why did the SAJBD withdraw its complaint
against the SABC? Why will the SAJBD not be present at the Icasa hearing tomorrow when it
and the FXI are supposed to present to Icasa's Complaints Compliance Committee on the
SABC blacklist saga? Check it out!
Dear Na'eem Jeenah,
Thank you for your email.
I was at the rally and I spoke to Jane Duncan.
The SABC rally was , to quote your own words,, dominated by a "motley crew". For about two hours traditional healers used it as a platform . Unfortunately this deflected from the real issue, namely that Zikalala should be immediately sacked for his political interference at The SABC.
When I previously emailed you about the fact that the head of news and current affairs should not be a position held by a senior ANC member, you told me that, in principle,The FXI had no problem with such a situation.
I have on numerous occasions pointed out that your own position as spokesperson for The PSC has affected The FXI's position on various matters ( your blog entries, inter alia, are evidence of this).I suspect that this is the reason why you are oblivious to the fact that Snuki Zikalala's wider political allegiances, are instrumental in dictating the stances that he takes at The SABC.
With regard to your questions about The SAJBD, I suggest that you pose them directly to The SAJBD. I am not their spokesperson and have often criticized the stances that they have taken. I am independent ( unlike you, who hold many positions outside of The FXI !) Of course, you can always vent your anger re The SAJBD (and The SAJR) on your blog.
To conclude, I emphasize that senior appointments at The SABC and The FXI should not be held by people who have other axes to grind. Only a "naive fool" would think otherwise. It is, of course, irrelevant that some people at The SAJBD and PSC are ANC members, but you are not sharp enough to understand that such organizations are inherently different from The SABC and The FXI. In the circumstances, perhaps Jane Duncan can explain the differences to you.
