The Congress of the People
condemns the ongoing attack on the media by President Jacob Zuma.
COPE says that on the launch
of the SABC News channel into Africa, it was no different. President Zuma allegedly
repeated that he had never come across media that was as hostile as our
COPE accuses President Zuma
for attacking the media for not being patriotic and for reporting bad stories
about our country.
COPE spokesman Dennis Bloem
said the media must be free to report whatever is happening in our country.
Bloem added that we are asking
why it is that President Zuma and his government is so determined in getting
the media, if they are not doing anything wrong.
“Why is it that they are
scared of the media?” Bloem added.
Bloem said we are condemning
these attacks with the seriousness it deserves.
