Johannesburg - SABC news anchor Eben Jansen has been taken off the air pending an investigation into his conduct during an interview with the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on colonial statues.
SABC spokesman Kaizer Kganyago said the public broadcaster was “unhappy” and Jansen would be off the air until the matter had been dealt with.
“The SABC doesn’t condone what happened and we feel it was something that should’ve been avoided.
“A decision has been made not to schedule Mr Jansen until this matter has been dealt with by management and himself.”
Jansen was interviewing EFF spokesman Mbuyiseni Ndlozi during his prime-time slot Newsroom, which airs on SABC’s DStv channel 404.
