News anchor in tears as she announces companywide SABC retrenchments
In a separate story, Briefly News reported that it was a sad moment for many SABC employees as the company announced that many of them will be retrenched. One of the employees, a news anchor for the television company, Desiree Chauke, was tasked with relaying the news to South Africans on Tuesday evening this week.
In a short clip of the news segment that was shared online, Chauke can be seen visibly emotional as she shared with her fellow South Africans that many of her colleagues will soon find themselves without jobs.
"This is painful and many South Africans are going through this not only SABC," @lebogang_mzansi captioned the clip online.
