SABC board fires Hlaudi Motsoeneng

Hlaudi Motsoeneng

Hlaudi Motsoeneng has been fired. SABC interim board chairwoman Khanyisile Kweyama said on Monday that the public broadcaster’s former chief operating officer had been given his marching orders.

Motsoeneng was dismissed over comments he made at a recent media briefing at which he criticised SABC board members and the parliamentary committee that was probing the poor state of governance at the broadcaster.

Kweyama made the announcement about Motsoeneng’s sacking after meeting with communications minister Ayanda Dlodlo. Motsoeneng had enjoyed protection from Dlodlo’s predecessor, Faith Muthambi, who was moved out of the ministry at the end of March when President Jacob Zuma reshuffled his cabinet.

Motsoeneng was already on suspension from the SABC. — (c) 2017 NewsCentral Media

    Get back to your day job; the broadcast industry has plenty of comedians and No Jobs for sidekicks 🙂

  2. So, we now await the “Return Of Hlaudi” movie.
    It should be most instructive to see how many legal eagles Mr. Unmatriculated is able to muster for his case against the SABC board for his imminent ‘wrongful dismissal’ action. Especially now that the state wont be paying them eye watering fees for their alleged expertise.
    Talking about legal action…isn’t it about time the taxpayers clawed back the salary that this jerk has been unfairly paid all the time he was masquerading as a QUALIFIED senior executive officer at a major broadcasting institution? Not to mention the ‘irregular’ pay rises he awarded himself?
    I thank the good Lord that I lived long enough to see this happy day!
