It's also stopped the reading of newspaper headlines on its current affairs shows.

Spokesperson, Kaizer Kganyago says they have secured their websites further since the incident to make sure it does not happen again.

''From our side we want to condemn it in the worst possible ways because this is something that is tantamount to terrorism. We are not going to allow ourselves to be bullied like that with this cyber-bullying. We will make sure that we get to the bottom of this and follow whoever it is that has done this,'' he said.
