SABCWATCH: Following the confirmation of Hlaudi Motsoeneng as the SABC's COO, and claims that board chair Zandile Tshabalala lied about her qualifications, and anger over the SABC's moves on Afrikaans programming, pressure is mounting on all sides...
Daily Maverick: Hlaudi weather: The fog is even thicker than it looks... Pierre de Vos says the appointment of Hlaudi Motsoeneng as the SABC's Chief Operating Officer (COO) despite his dishonest and prima facie criminal behaviour raises serious questions about the willingness of public institutions and our government to respect constitutional institutions and to obey the law.
Pressure is piling up on Communications Minister Faith Muthambi (left) (Image GCIS) and the SABC over her decision to appoint Hlaudi Motsoeneng (Image: SABC) as chief operations officer of the SABC. And if that weren't enough, there are also issues around the SABC's handling of Afrikaans programming and the board chair's alleged lie over her qualifications.
Politics Web: COSATU alarmed at latest SABC allegations... Spokesperson for COSATU, Patrick Craven, says the Congress of South African Trade Unions is deeply concerned at the allegation, reported in the City Press on 13 July 2014, that the SABC board chairperson, Zandile Ellen Tshabalala, lied to Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Communications by fabricating her CV to say that she holds a degree and a senior diploma from UNISA.
The university has reportedly denied Tshabalala's claim.
