SABC News has confirmed that it is set to launch a new show titled The Watchdog, hosted by seasoned journalist, Vuyo Mvoko.
The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) took to Twitter on Monday, 7 June 2021, to announce the imminent launch of a new public service programme, The Watchdog. The show is part of SABC News’ continued efforts to provide new content. The show will focus on probing public service commitments made by those in power and holding them accountable.
According to the SABC, “The Watchdog also marks the return of veteran journalist, Vuyo Mvoko, who will be anchoring the show on the SABC News Channel. As a seasoned broadcaster, Mvoko is appropriately experienced and equipped to deliver to the demands of the programme.”
Moreover, Mvoko also commented, “I couldn’t have asked for a better brief than what this assignment is about. Our country is going through hard times with among others, record-high unemployment, corruption, and service delivery problems. South Africans are asking frank questions that require equally honest interventions.”
The Watchdog is set to air every weeknight at 20:00 on SABC News.
