SABC journalists asking for urgent meeting with COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng

EWN reporter Rahima Essop reports on Jimmi Mathews resignation as editor at the SABC, the most senior position on paper.

She told 702's Xolani Gwala that Mathews apologised for remaining silent, believing he would be able to change the institution form the inside, but was defeated.

Essop says the series of nine chief executive officers that have moved through the organisation since 2009 is testament to its instability.

She says lobbyists calling for an improved public broadcaster say COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng is "calling the shots" and under hos leadership has ramped up the censorship campaign.

The three senior journalists who wrote a letter to the COO describing the culture of fear in the SABC newsroom, are urgently calling for a meeting with Motsoeneng.
