JOHANNESBURG - Eight SABC journalists facing disciplinary hearings have been awarded the Nat Nakasa Award.
The SA National Editor&39;s Forum gives out the award annually to media professionals who show exceptional integrity and courage in their work.
Thandeka Gqubule, Foeta Krige and Suna Venter were suspended last month by the public broadcaster.
They disagreed with an instruction by management not to cover a protest against censorship at the SABC.
SABC journalists can&39;t even tweet congratulatory messages to suspended colleagues who won the Nat Nakasa award for Courageous Journalism?— Cde JMN (@CdeJMN) July 10, 2016
