sabcTMG Digital reports that the SABC says its ban on staff from making political comments or posting pictures of themselves wearing party regalia on social media is merely a reiteration of its existing policy on social media conduct.  

The national broadcaster’s Kaizer Kganyago said the corporation would not tolerate any employee who brought the organisation into disrepute through comments on social media.  He added that if employees were seen wearing political regalia or commenting about politics‚ it affected perceptions of objectivity.  Kganyago indicated that the policy was simply a reminder of the rules for new employees‚ and that it was no different from that implemented by other media houses.  "Put a (comment) in the social space that brings the organisation into disrepute‚ we’ll deal with it‚" he stated.
