When the news first broke that the long-running soap opera Days of Our Lives will be culled from SABC TV due to the implementation of the 80-90 percent local content quota for SABC TV channels, we were quite pleasantly surprised by some of the funny reactions from some Facebook users.

OK we came up with a fairly mild one for the title of this article but check out further below what some facebook users who are just a little bit wittier than us had to say. We won't be giving there names as some of them are our personal friends with Ridiculously High Social Media Privacy Settings... They've got issues yeah...  and we don't want to get into a fight with them over that.
No we aren't making this up either; These one-liners are really out there...

Beautiful Kay Smith who plays Tarryn in the soapie 7de Laan has since her first appearance on the show been at the receiving end of sometimes silly but often times very cruel memes deriding her lovely bossiekop of natural hair.

Kay Smith has decided to repond to the jibes and that she did with a very positive attitude in a video presented and narrated by journalist Bertram Malgas.
All the attention that her hair is drawing has encouraged her to push on with what Bertram calls her 'Natural Hair Crusade'.

Around 2008, the South African Movement for Equality (SAME) started addressing the violation of media rights and privileges for the Coloured population group in South Africa. This led to a protracted engagement with the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), including an open letter which, on 06 June 2011 (view here) , was sent to

The President of the Republic of South Africa
The Minister of Communications
The Chairman of the SABC Board
The Acting Group CEO of the SABC.

Despite these peaceful actions there was no favourable response by any of those to whom the matter was addressed.

The South African Movement for Equality (SAME) has called on the support of the public in their demand for equitable access to public broadcast media for the census-defined Coloured population group.
This group includes all people who are deemed to be Coloured as defined on census forms irrespective whether they self-identify as Coloured or whether they choose to self-identify as among others, Khoi, San, Khoisan, Bruin, Kullid, Mixed-race, Black or just South African.
An online petition has been created by SAME founding member Charles Ash to address the unequal  or non-existent access to state-funded broadcast media afforded to this population group
