Kunande kucima emzimkhulu we SABC e Auckland Park

KWAMHLANGA – The crash of systems at the SABC due to mass retrenchments and lack of preparation for a new structure led to embarrassing interruptions in broadcasting that saw TV and radio shows resorting to old content to avoid dead air and a blackout.

Flare fm news heard that President Cyril Ramaphosa has summoned Communications and Digital Technologies Minister Stella Ndabeni- Abrahams to a meeting to discuss the crisis plaguing the public broadcaster.

On Thursday, the systems that the corporation – with four TV and 18 radio stations – uses to edit and air content crashed for hours, leading to stations using old content.
