SABC political editor Abbey Makoe and other leaders of the Forum of
Black Journalists (FBJ) will be brought before the South African Human
Rights Commission (SAHRC) to ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œexplain their conductÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â, writes Chris Bathembu in The Citizen.
The incident, which drew sharp criticism from media organisations and civil rights groups, was at the Sandton Sun Hotel on Friday.
Makoe, who is FBJ steering committee chairman, insisted there was nothing wrong with the exclusion of the three.
SAHRC chairman Jody Kollapen said yesterday the commission was also considering public hearings on the matter. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œWe are busy assessing a complaint filed by Talk Radio 702, and will ask the FBJ to explain their conduct,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â said Kollapen.
