Demand SABC refunds the top 10 song of the year voters

We the undersigned call on the SABC to pay full refunds to all its listeners that voted for "song of the year 2019" which was to be aired on SABC radio stations on the 31st December 2019.

Why is this important?

The SABC started the selection process for "song of the year 2019" and opened voting lines to listeners even though they already knew that they did not have an agreement with the concept owners of "song of the year". The concept owners took the SABC to court to stop this. The Court then instructed the SABC to not air "song of the year 2019", resulting in a loss for all those who had already voted. It is false advertising and unfair to those who voted that the SABC has taken their money but did not deliver a song of the year countdown.

How it will be delivered

The petition will be delivered to the SABC CEO, Mr Madoda Xakwe who will execute the refunding process.
