Johannesburg - An interview with Julius Malema on SABC radio on Tuesday was cancelled due to editorial interference, the Friends of the Youth League claimed.

The public broadcaster's management had instructed Metro FM talkshow host Sakina Kamwendo to cancel an interview with the expelled African National Congress Youth League leader, suspended ANCYL spokesperson Floyd Shivambu alleged.

SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago could not be reached for comment.

“The SABC has been reduced into a Zuma broadcasting corporation, only focusing on what (President) Jacob Zuma does and says,” said Shivambu. - Sapa
