Government spokesperson, Themba Maseko, says that Cabinet has re-affirmed its commitment to meet with the South African National Editors Forum (SANEF) to discuss what he calls ‘the perception that government is bent on muzzling the media’.

Maseko says at that meeting, government will confirm the fact that there is neither a plan nor an intention on its part to limit media freedom because muzzling the media will be contrary to the principle of freedom of speech that is enshrined in the Constitution.

Maseko says that, "Part of what that meeting must achieve is the creation of an environment for rational and less emotional debate on media freedom."
