sabcNews24 reports that one of the so-called SABC 8, Vuyo Mvoko, will be approaching the High Court to put him back on the air after the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) terminated its contract with him.  

Mvoko told News24 that his lawyers would be filing the papers on Friday morning.  The application will be for the court to rule that the SABC's decision not to "schedule" him constituted a breach of contract.  Four of the eight who were fired from the broadcaster this week are challenging their dismissal in the Labour Court in Johannesburg on Friday afternoon.  All eight have applied for direct access to the Constitutional Court.  Meantime, the Helen Suzman Foundation and the broadcaster reached an agreement on Wednesday which saw the High Court in Pretoria interdicting the broadcaster from enacting its policy of not showing footage of violent protests.
