Cape Town - The Parliamentary inquiry into the SABC was the main focus of news in South Africa, media monitoring organisation ROiAfrica said on Sunday.

"SA social media was relentless about the SABC inquiry, generating over 2/3 of the charts during the week,” said RoiAfrica’s managing director Tonya Khoury in a statement.

While over one-fifth of all formal news stories dealt with the various controversies of the national broadcaster, the uproar over the pass rate for mathematics at public schools was also a popular topic, as was the stepping down of cricket star AB De Villiers.

Besides the overwhelming interest in the SABC inquiry, social media also recorded ongoing chatter about controversial business family, the Guptas.
