The SABC on Sunday poured cold water on claims that its chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng was offering “R100 000 rewards” for exposing employees who leaked internal information.

“It is not true that we offered any reward to anyone,” the public broadcaster’s spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago told News24.

According to the Sunday Times, unnamed senior editors revealed that Motsoeneng had announced the reward incentive during a recent management meeting.

Kganyago said that employment contracts signed by all staff prohibited them from speaking to the media.

“All we are saying is that we will apply the policies of the organisation to deal with people who leak information.”

In an interview with the Sunday Times, Motsoeneng said it was going to be “tit for tat” with media houses from now on.

“That is what we are going to do. You investigate the SABC, well done, we are going to do the same to you,” he was reported as saying.
