South African disc jockey and media personality DJ Fresh has just reacted to the news of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) partnering with MultiChoice to broadcast the Rugby World Cup.
In a statement, the South African Ministry of Sports, Arts and Culture detailed its agreement with MultiChoice for the broadcast of the Rugby World Cup. Sports broadcaster Tobert Marawa shared the the stamen on his official Twitter page.
Reacting to the tweet, DJ Fresh used it to highlight a problem that has been plaguing South Africa for a while – load shedding. Having secured the deal to broadcast the match, what next?
If they broadcast the Rugby World Cup, how would people be able to watch it with the lack of electricity occasioned by the load shedding currently bedevilling the country?
It is a good thing that the deal to broadcast the match was struck but that is not enough, as far as DJ Fresh is concerned. Now, there is a need for another deal – one that would give South Africans electricity to actually watch the match. You can check out the post below.
Now to find an electricity deal so we can actually watch the limited matches!’ https://t.co/GqQVp7ifb9

Well, are those to whom the message was directed actually listening? And will they take up the challenge DJ Fresh has thrown their way?
