702 Afternoon Drive host Stephen Grootes says that he was pondering why the EFF has been rather quiet around the SABC's two-hour interview with the Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini.
In 2006, the Mail and Guardian reported that the SABC paid Leadership Magazine R123 000 for a cover story featuring its chief executive, says Grootes. He says the SABC chief executive at that time was Dali Mpofu, who now holds the position of EFF national chair,
And it gets even more interesting, he adds, as authorisation came from Phumelele Nzimande, who was the Group Executive for Public International and Regulatory affairs at that time.
You’ve got Dali Mpofu paying a huge amount of money for the SABC. The SABC paying for a cover story on Leadership Magazine back in 2006, and now it seems that the SABC is accepting money for interviews.— Stephen Grootes, 702 presenter
