JOHANNESBURG – The South African Communist Party (SACP) expressed its solidarity with Afro Worldview employees after the channel was broken by MultiChoice.
The channel, formerly known as the ANN7 connected to Gupta, was removed from the air on Monday.

Spokesman Alex Mashilo says the government urgently needs to revise its migration policy for digital broadcasts.
"We also support their union, the Communications Workers Union, for its best efforts to save the jobs of the laborers, and the trade union met with the parties involved and made a number of commitments."
