Is Selimathunzi Getting The Chop?

Is Selimathunzi Getting The Chop?

Feb 25, 2019, 07:30 AM

Change is a nasty experience, isn't it? Especially when it comes in floods as the ones at the SABC. The public broadcaster has made abrupt announcements which detailed just how much change in programming is set to occur therefore bracing the loyal viewers for more unsuspected tweaks.

South African well known entertainment blogger, Phil Mphela, set his Twitter feed ablaze when he posted that he had it on good authority that South Africa's most loved gossip television show Real Goboza, Selimathunzi and #WTF Tumi are set to get the chop very soon. It is still not in the clear as to what extent these reports are true as there have been some really opposing posts from industry insiders.




South African businesswoman and media personality, Uyanda Mbuli responded to the claims made by Phil Mphela. Uyanda's comments hold weight as she previously worked at the SABC.

An iconic television show such Selimathunzi would unlikely get the chop as Uyanda stated in her tweet.




In a deleted tweet, Phil had boldly stated that Real Goboza will be decommissioned going forward. This post did not sit well with a number of people as they found it misleading.

Phil has since corrected his post, by stating that Real Goboza will in fact be recommissioned.




The Real Goboza team seemed unfazed by the latest claims as they tweeted a rather enticing and reassuring post about the vague happenings on the show.



We are sitting at the edges of our seats - trying to figure what the SABC could throw our way because there are upsetting changes going around.
