Thursday, April 26, 2018

Cabinet has welcomed the agreement reached to reconnect 15 community radio stations that were suspended by Sentech for non-payment of signal distribution fees. 

Addressing the post Cabinet media briefing in Cape Town this morning, Communications Minister Nomvula Mokonyane said the agreement was reached after government met with Sentech, the National Community Radio Forum, the Media Development and Diversity Agency and the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa. 

Minister Mokonyane said the community radio sector is a critical communication platform that gives people access to information. 

“All parties have agreed to convene soon to come up with a long-lasting solution that will result in the sustainability of these stations,” Minister Mokonyane said. –SAnews.gov.za
