The SABC is going to the high court in Johannesburg on Monday over the awarding of a tender for outside broadcast vans.

Spokesman Kaizer Kganyago confirmed the case was going ahead, but did not want to violate sub judice rules by discussing it.

The Star reported the broadcaster would be in court over a tender dispute that relating to buying outside broadcast vans from either Sony or Digital Horizons.

The broadcaster reportedly said at a previous court appearance it needed the units for next year’s Fifa World Cup. Fifa’s broadcasting agent was expected to tell the court it did not need
the units and there was no contract with the SABC. 

Update: The case between the SABC and technology company Digital Horizons was postponed to allow for the two parties to consult further before advising the court on a new date for a hearing.

Digital Horizons was asking the court to rule on a R400m tender for outside broadcast vans awarded to Sony by the SABC.
