solidariteitNews24 reports that the Labour Court’s ruling that four of the axed SABC journalists must be reinstated is the first victory in a larger battle against those in the broadcaster who feel that the Constitution does not apply to them, Solidarity said on Tuesday.  

The four journalists are Foeta Krige, Suna Venter, Krivani Pillay and Jacques Steenkamp.  The court ruled earlier that the dismissal of the four was unlawful.  "This is a solid win," Solidarity chief executive Dirk Hermann told reporters after the judgment.  He went on to say:  "The strategic battle has been won, but ultimately the war must still go on.  We are appealing to the civil society alliance to win the war so that the SABC will once again be owned by South Africans.”
