SABC’s Hlaudi Motsoeneng ‘guilty’

24 November 2013 6:001A “damning” provisional report by Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has decried the abuse of power and maladministration by senior executives and former board members of the SABC. City Press has seen the recommendations made in the report, which slams “unlawful” behaviour by the SABC’s acting chief operating officer, Hlaudi Motsoeneng, and “improper conduct” by group chief executive officer Lulama Mokhobo. Madonsela’s investigation began early last year after complaints from disgruntled SABC staff members. The report lists 14 current and former staff members who were suspended or fired unfairly. The report also lambastes the “fruitless and wasteful expenditure” on drawn-out labour disputes with these employees and recommends that the SABC publicly apologise to them. But that’s just for starters. The report also slams current executives, as well as Pule and the former board.
