SABC News' unprofessional and amateurishly done live news coverage of Simba Mhere's memorial service with reporter Stephina Komane.

The SABC and SABC News' (DStv 404) live coverage of Simba Mhere's funeral on Thursday afternoon at the Rhema Bible Church in Randburg was (once again) unprofessional and amateurishly done.

Here's just a little clip of the (sadly) insanity. Why the SABC dispatch a SABC TV news reporter who is clearly incapable of handling and professionally report on something the SABC should know is a big news event is beyond anyone's guess.

Yes. There's a lot of things going on at the same time. That's why you need a professional, experienced and veteran TV news reporter like a Chriselda Lewis to cover these type of events. Not Stephina Komane.

It's okay to make a mistake. It's okay to make two mistakes. It's not okay to be and look out of your depths and to make multiple mistakes constantly.

Bad live coverage TV news coverage like this is an embarrassment to the SABC and SABC News.
