The SABC board passed a vote of no confidence in nonexecutive director Hope Zinde and removed her from the post on Thursday.
“Today’s meeting managed to only deal with issues relating to one nonexecutive director, Ms Hope Zinde, in whom the board passed a vote of no confidence and resolved to remove her as a nonexecutive director with effect from [Thursday],” it said in a statement.
The board met to discuss the conduct of some of its members.
“The allegations levelled against them include … fraudulent conduct, raising matters of the board externally without a mandate and non-disclosure of conflict of interest.”
In January, board member Bongani Khumalo resigned, allegedly because communications minister Faith Muthambi had sent letters to the board members asking why they should not be suspended.
His resignation came less than a month after SABC board chair Zandile Tshabalala resigned, after she was unable to provide proof of her academic qualifications, as requested by a parliamentary committee.
Last year, the public broadcaster’s CEO, Lulama Mokhobo, resigned. Chief financial officer Gugu Duda was fired for misconduct. — Sapa
