We always kept constant engagement with government and community stakeholders, said Puleng Mmotla, SKCTV Initiative board member.

ICASA’s Moratorium did not only affect Sekhukhune TV Initiative, another community television initiative that on the waiting list to be granted licence is the Royal Bopedi TV and many others were affected by the national department of communication’ migration of analogy to digital transmissions.

MMC Matlala was flanked by Ward Cllr Motseni Lilian and Cllr Rankoe Tabane who delivered welcome remarks as Acting Mayor of Makhuduthamaga local municipality on behalf of Mayor Cllr Minah Bahula.

MMC Matlala says South African media is currently mostly ruled by foreign nations “Who then shall tell the story of Africa, who shall tell true stories of Sekhukhuneland, Manche Masemola, who shall tell the stories of the warrior Kings wo put-up wars of residence against colonial encroachment, without distortion?
