MOTSOENENG HASN’T REPORTED FOR WORK, ADVISED TO STAY AWAY

Hlaudi Motsoeneng did not report for work on Tuesday following legal advice that he wait for a decision from the public broadcaster on whether it will appeal a ruling.

The Western Cape High Court on Monday found the South African Broadcasting Corporation board failed to uphold the Constitution and ignored the findings of the Public Protector’s office.

It ruled that Motsoeneng’s appointment as group executive of corporate affairs was unlawful and irrational, and that he should not occupy any position at the broadcaster.

Motsoeneng’s lawyer Zola Majavu says: “As matters stand, until the employer responds to me, I have advised him not to go to work as a precautionary measure and to deal with any suggestions that he may be in contempt with the court.”

The Democratic Alliance (DA) in October filed an application to have Motsoeneng removed from his position as the state broadcaster’s group executive of corporate affairs.

The legal action against Motsoeneng coincides with an inquiry into the SABC board’s fitness to do its work.
