sabcEWN reports that the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has suspended three of its employees for the airing of the incorrect clip of President Cyril Ramaphosa's address on gender-based violence.  

One freelancer has also been unscheduled after last week’s incident.  The clip shows Ramaphosa making mistakes and asking to start over in what was thought to be a live broadcast.  The SABC launched a preliminary investigation into the matter and said it had strong prima facie evidence indicating that the broadcast of the incorrect clip was a well-considered and coordinated act of sabotage to bring the public broadcaster, and consequently the president, into disrepute.   Spokesperson Vuyo Mthembu said:  “Due process will be followed and the second process of investigation into this incident is still under way.”
