“The role of a public broadcaster in a democracy is a critical one. The SABC at the moment has the ability to undermine the strength of our democracy.”

On July 1st, 2016 the public and journalists protested against the censoring of news on the public broadcaster, SABC. In this episode, we asked protestors on the street to share their opinions with us. In addition, we continue our conversation with the individuals from Season 7 Episode 13 “Why Vote?” to discuss censorship.
