SABC blames power outages on broadcast disruptions

Just a day after the SABC’s contentious retrenchment process wrapped up, live broadcasts on some of its radio stations were interrupted this morning, with the broadcaster blaming a power outage. The break in transmission comes just hours after the emotional exit of hundreds of employees. They were retrenched after the board announced last year that it would undergo a restructuring process to try and trim its R2.4 billion annual salary bill.
