SABC boss must be suspended: Supreme Court

South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) boss Hlaudi Motsoeneng should be suspended for 60 days while a disciplinary hearing into his breaches is conducted‚ the Supreme Court of Appeal court has ruled.

Motsoeneng was challenging an earlier high court order that found Public Protector Thuli Madonsela’s finding that action be taken against him for receiving exorbitant salary increases and forging his matric qualification.

Motsoeneng has since been awarded a further R1-million salary increase by the SABC board and has remained at work free from any disciplinary action.

The SABC will now have to investigate him and bring a disciplinary case against him or face being in contempt of court.
