Sunday Independent reported yesterday that communications committee chairperson Joyce Moloi-Moropa confirmed the minister would appear before the committee, apparently this week.
Mail & Guardian reports that in an opinion piece in the same newspaper (Sunday Independent), "Muthambi suggested the SABC board's response to a public protector report about Motsoeneng would enable her and the public to determine if the board acted correctly in recommending Motsoeneng for the job."
The New Age reports that "tensions are rising within the ANC-led tripartite alliance over the endorsement of Hlaudi Motsoeneng as SABC chief operating officer by Communications Minister Faith Muthambi."
Meanwhile... it's nothing to do with me: Zuma
According to a statement released by the presidency on Saturday, Jacob Zuma "had no role to play in the appointment of Hlaudi Motsoeneng as the Chief Operations Officer of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC)."
In the statement, the Presidency said, "it had noted with great concern statements in the media alleging the involvement of President Zuma in the appointment of Motsoeneng.
"The President has no role to play in the appointment of SABC management or staff, and did not play any role in the said appointment. Reports to the contrary are inaccurate and unfortunate," the Presidency said.
