"I never signed up for political activism..... Censorship is despicable!"
"We have a duty to do what is right", says the Head of the SABC News Division, Phathiswa Magopeni. She goes on to say, "Our editorial policy is clear about who we are. We cover government, but we are not the mouthpiece of the government. We decide how we apply our mandate.....We exist primarily to the needs of South African citizens.....We are the voice of the voiceless.....We are the eyes and ears of the public to provide watchdog content so as to enhance the democracy of the country. That is our mandate."
