The EFF says the postponement of the ANN7 South African of the Year (SATY) Awards was a sign that South Africans were rejecting the wealthy and politically-connected Gupta family.
ANN7 said on Tuesday the awards would be postponed until 2017, meaning Jennifer Lopez would no longer be visiting our shores either.
“A new date will be announced in due course. The postponement is due to unforeseen regulatory circumstances that have materially impacted on logistics for the event,” ANN7 said.
Responding to the statement, the EFF said: “We welcome this as a manifestation of the response to the EFF call for South Africans to boycott the awards, thus rendering the ceremony unattainable.”
