The South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR) says censorship legislation and media tribunals will be much more widely deployed to silence critics.
SAIRR chief executive, Kane-Berman, points out that the current attack on media freedom by the African National Congress (ANC) and the South African Communist Party (SACP), according to another editor, “Is consistent with the core values of neither party”.
Kane-Berman states that, “The antagonism of both the ANC and the SACP to critical newspapers is deeper. It is ideological.”
