The SABC has confirmed that it will take action against those that posted the “unapproved” Miss SA poll that left a bitter taste to many South Africans.
The broadcaster’s spokesperson, Vuyo Mthembu told MGOSI that they know those responsible for posting the content but their names cannot be shared and relevant internal measures against them will be applied.
