You're reading it here first. The SABC3 worker responsible for the Survivor: China finale fiasco when SABC3 botched the broadcast by NOT showing a whole segment, is still sitting home.
The channel unleashed massive viewer fury when it didn't broadcast a segment during the broadcast of the final episodes on 31 August, cause by human error in the final control box.
''The person is still suspended,'' SABC3's head of publicity Gesh Conco told me when I asked about what happened in the wake of the big mix-up. ''It was a technical fault, but it was human error. The person has not yet been back to work,'' he says.
''We are currently looking at our quality control measures and how we got to where we got, and how we can prevent a recurrence from ever happening again.''
