sabcCape Times reports that suspended SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) contributing editor Vuyo Mvoko could know by Friday whether the SABC will reinstate him.  

The High Court in Johannesburg is expected give a verdict on the matter between the veteran journalist and the public broadcaster on Friday morning.  The ruling could see Mvoko either being reinstated or being told to await the outcome of a SABC’s probe.  He was suspended following an article he penned for The Star, in which he criticised the censorship and culture of bullying at the corporation.  The SABC suspended Mvoko, who was hired on a three-year contract, pending an investigation into whether he had breached his contract by bringing the corporation into disrepute.  The broadcaster argued that the matter should not have escalated to the court as they were still investigating it.  However, Mvoko’s advocate on Thursday asked the court to deal with the matter on an urgent basis.
