The SABC should not be given additional funding until it is able to properly manage its finances.
This is according to Kate Skinner of the Save Our SABC coalition.
It recently emerged that the Special Investigating Unit has unearthed a series of dodgy financial deals within the SABC amounting to more than R1.4 -billion.
Skinner says it is true that the SABC needs funding to provide quality programming.
She maintains however that the public broadcaster simply can’t be trusted.
