The Creative Workers Union of South Africa (CWUSA) and Musician Association of South Africa say still remain the strongest backers of controversial SABC boss Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

The South African Communist Party (SACP) organised a peaceful protest outside the SABC, protesting against censorship within the public broadcaster on Wednesday morning and during the protest CWUSA with Friends of Hlaudi disturbed the protest, saying there are tired of different organisations misrepresenting musicians.

“People need to check the definition of censorship, Hlaudi introduced changes that will assist us as musicians,” Tebogo Sithathu, the president of Musician Association of South Africa told DRUM during the fracas.

These disturbances sparked a feud between the SACP and the CWUSA, as both these organisations had clash regarding how the SABC should be run.

The musicians strongly believe that they need to protect Motsoeneng against any negativity, but the SACP is adamant that Motsoeneng, who was last year found guilty of forging his matric certificate, should step down.
