Mahumapelo cut ties with SABC in North West
Premier Supra Mahumapelo has suspended his relationship with the public broadcaster indefinitely.
The Office of the Premier in the North West Province says it has decided to suspend its working relations with the SABC.
This follows allegations that the SABC in North West gives Premier Supra Mahumapelo special preference. The City Press newspaper reported claims that Mahumapelo was getting excessive coverage and was telling the SABC's provincial unit how stories about him should be reported. Provincial government spokesperson, Brian Setswambung says these are all lies.
Speaking to Sakina Kamwendo on #AMLive Setswambung said the premier will speak to the SABC, just NOT its North West Province
