SABC 8 Vuyo Mvoko says death threat will not deter him

Suspended SABC (South African Broadcasting Corportation) journalist, Vuyo Mvoko, claims that there are tactics to intimidate him.

Speaking to 702/Cape Talk's Eusebius McKaiser, he said he received a message yesterday labelling him a traitor and threatening violence, for speaking up about his concerns with editorial policy under Hlaudi Motsoeneng's leadership.

What is happening now is that there's a possibility of somebody wanting to stop the truth from coming out.

A person can do whatever it is they want. I went into this thing with my eyes open and knowing that there would be consequences.
