Johannesburg - Commentator and Independent Media columnist Eusebius McKaiser says he was dumped from an SABC radio show this week because of his scathing attack on ANC leaders entitled “‘Good’ guys at top shockingly silent”.
But SABC spokesman Kaizer Kganyago suggested McKaiser was creating a conspiracy and acting as if he had an “inherent right” to be given space to air his views on the public broadcaster.
Kganyago was reacting to a Facebook post by McKaiser in which he said he had been “uninvited” as a guest on SAfm’s AM Live show after he wrote a column critical of President Jacob Zuma, Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko and other senior ANC leaders.
In his column, blasting ANC leaders for not speaking out about the ongoing Nkandlagate scandal, McKaiser wrote: “Can any ANC politician really be regarded as morally good if they say nothing when the state is being looted?”
His column appeared in Independent Media newspapers and on IOL on Monday.
