Without the president taking action, there’s little the ANC can do beyond holding a meeting with the minister, but both Muthambi and the SABC could be undermined on Monday if a decision from the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) goes against them. Media Monitoring Africa, supported by other groups, challenged the SABC’s policy not to air footage of violent protests, which the public broadcaster defended by saying it would deter copycats and present a more positive image of the country. The minister supported the move, which was announced in May. Media Monitoring Africa argued it goes against the Constitution and the law.
