SABC interim board named

Parliament’s Communications Committee recently announced that it has finalised the interim board, with 8 members voting for and 4 members voting against.

The names of the interim SABC board are: Ms Libby Loyd, Dr Phillip Frederick Mtimkulu, Adv Leslie Kgopotse Sedibe, Ms Irene Charnley and Ms Suzanne Vos.

Ms Irene Charnley was heading the SMILE campaign, which was engaged in brining Information Communications Technologies (ICT) to the rural areas of South Africa. “Her strong point was her experience in corporate governance issues, something she had been involved in at MTN amongst other places,” the ANC said.

Ms Libby Lloyd had been the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Media Development and Diversity Agency (MDDA) and she had served the SABC in a variety of ways, including doing research for the public broadcaster.

According to the ANC Adv Leslie Sedibe was chosen to bring strong legal capabilities to the board. He had been involved in the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the Local Organising Committee procurements.

Dr Phillip Frederick Mtimkulu is currently at University of South Africa (UNISA).

Ms Suzanne Vos is a retired IFP politician who previously served on parliament’s communications portfolio committee.

Party Nominations

The Democratic Alliance and COPE had earlier announced their nominations as Mr Peter Matlare, Mr Mark Jakins, Prof Alison Gilward, Dr Mampela Ramphele. The IFP nominated Ms Suzanne Vos.

The ANC nominees were: Ms Irene Charnley; Dr Phillip Frederick Mtimkulu; Ms Libby Lloyd; Adv Leslie Sedibe; and Adv William Mokhare. Not all of the ID nominees had been consulted so the provisional list was: Mr Frederick van Zyl Slabbert; Prof Chris Landsberg; Associate Prof Richard Calland; Ms Maria Ramos; and Mr Max du Preez.
