It's been a long, hard and expensive slog, but next week former president Jacob Zuma will finally get what he's always wanted: his day in court.
A labour court has ruled that Infinity Media Networks – which ran the Afro Worldview news channel – reinstate employees because they were not properly dismissed.
Twitter users have expressed outrage, as well as sympathy, following the announcement that Afro Worldview's contract has been terminated by pay TV operator MultiChoice.
Mzwanele Manyi says "media outlets" spread a narrative which "vilified and delegitimised black owned businesses".
Afro Worldview boss Mzwanele Manyi has announced three new shareholders, reassuring SA of business stability and editorial independence.
Judgment is expected to be handed down on Thursday morning where an estimated 22 retrenched employees want Afro Worldview to give them formal notice and severance pay.
Employees at news channel Afro Worldview, formerly known as ANN7, have been left in limbo after they were informed that the broadcaster's contract with pay TV operator MultiChoice had come to an end and the channel would be going off air at 23:59.
Negative perception surrounding the newspaper formerly linked to the Gupta family led to its financial woes, court papers show.
