SANEF WARNS AGAINST UNSUBSTANTIATED ALLEGATIONS AGAINST JOURNALISTS

Friday, 13 April 2018

The South African National Editors’ Forum (SANEF) has noted the debate about the role of the media in peddling falsehoods and discrediting certain anti-apartheid activists.

This debate has erupted as we mourn the death of Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

In the course of the debate about her legacy and experience as a freedom fighter, some journalists have been accused of being spies, or rogue operators that tried to tarnish her name by publishing stories planted by the apartheid government.

A video clip is circulating of the late struggle icon in which she mentions particular journalists of “doing the work of” the Apartheid security establishment including STRATCOM.

Mrs. Madikizela-Mandela states that the work of these journalists contributed to her being undermined and vilified.

SANEF fully acknowledges the brutality of the apartheid regime and its misinformation campaigns.

Given this context of lies and propaganda, we believe it is critical that concrete evidence is brought forward to substantiate claims that specific journalists supported the apartheid state’s security establishment.
