Right now, any decision Hlaudi Motsoeneng makes is likely to be greeted with derision.
The beleagured SABC boss is copping a serious amount of flak for renewing the contract of 'Uzalo'.
The locally-produced telenovela pulled in an impressive number of viewers in its first season, and even superceded the ratings of 'Generations'.
However, the SABC initially declined to renew the show for a second season, and when Motsoeneng pulled rank and pumped a whopping amount of money (alleged to be R167 million) into the production, rumours of political interference reared its head.
That’s because Stained Glass Productions, the company behind Uzalo, is co-owned by Gugu Zuma-Ncube, the daughter of president Jacob Zuma.
