2012-09-11 15:54

Johannesburg - The SABC has promised Cosatu "comprehensive coverage" of next week's congress, the Star reported.

Congress of SA Trade Unions general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi told the newspaper that SABC head of news Jimi Matthews had promised that the congress would be covered.

"Met Jimmy Mathews - head of SABC news - they will cover congress comprehensively - he insist that's always been the intention - I'm happy," Vavi reportedly commented on the social network Twitter.

It has been reported in the past week that the SABC planned to scale down coverage of the event, apparently for political reasons.

SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago was not immediately available for comment.
