Motsoeneng promises to review the recent suspensions

EWN's Gia Nicolaides says today's protests by journalists against the censorship at the SABC as well as the suspension of colleagues, was successful. The crowd swelled to around 200 to 3300 people with the likes of veteran jounalsits and esitors such as Karima Brown and Ferial Haffajee in attendance.

Former Cosatu Secretary General Zwelinzima Vavi was there to support the suspended journalists and to make a stand for media freedom.

After much negotiation, Vavi led a delegation into the SABC building in Auckland park, Johannesburg, and had a meeting with COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

Nicolaides spoke to Vavi after the meeting.

He said he did not get as much progress as he had hoped, but did have a long discussion.

Motsoeneng defended himself, saying he did not know why journalists had been suspended and would look into it, and get back to them at noon on Monday

Nicolaides says this was a contrasting statement to his clear position at the press briefing earlier in the week, where he said anyone not adhering to SABC policy would face disciplinary action.
