Phamodi said he “wouldn’t bet money” on the SABC complying with Icasa’s order.
“We know the SABC is notorious for routinely taking matters upon judicial review, in spite of the fact that the rulings are very sound rulings. They abuse the court process routinely, abuse public funds routinely in order to defend the indefensible,” he said.
Head of policy at Media Monitoring Africa Thandi Smith said it would be a “logical step” for the SABC to take the matter for review. “We are really happy, we welcome the judgment and we are really excited about Icasa’s ruling in the public interest and justice prevailing in the case,” she said.
