SABC: Minister feeds the white wolf

2012-05-09 11:25
 
Cape Town - The minister of communications, Dina Pule, "feeds the white wolf" when it comes to issues pertaining to the SABC.

Pule told parliament on Tuesday that she's tired of all the negative questions, comments and stories about the SABC and that not enough attention is given to the positive progress at South Africa's public broadcaster.

"There are no squabbles at the SABC," said Pule.

"I don't know why we thrive on wanting to go back to the negative on a daily basis, even when there is a positive."

Pule quoted self-help author Brian Tracy and said on the shoulders of all of us as individuals we have two wolves.

"The one wolf is white and the other wolf is black. You have to choose which one to feed. On the SABC matter, I choose to feed the white wolf which is positive."

Last week, during her presentation of the SABC's new three-year Corporate Plan for 2012 – 2015, SABC CEO Lulama Mokhobo said that the barrage of bad press heaped on the SABC has had a massive negative effect on the public broadcaster.

'SABC is on track'

Pule told parliament that South Africa's process of migration to digital terrestrial television is "on track" and that she's happy with the progress of the SABC.

"We are happy with the progress made after the SABC board appointed the executive leadership.

"These appointments are helping to stabilise the broadcaster and to enable its management to focus on meeting the conditions of the government guaranteed loan," she said.

"The SABC's Turnaround Strategy has started to show positive results.

"The SABC is also working towards launching a 24-hour news channel, and we support them on their commitment moving forward with this initiative," she said.
