Judgment in the case brought by the Democratic Alliance to have SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s permanent appointment declared unlawful is expected to be heard at the Western Cape High Court on Friday.
Last month the political party filed papers against Motsoeneng, the SABC, its board and board chairperson.
It wants them to be found in contempt of court for not suspending Motsoeneng as per a Western Cape High Court order a year ago.
News24 previously reported that the Supreme Court of Appeal [SCA] recently upheld a Western Cape High Court order by Judge Ashton Schippers that Motsoeneng be suspended for 60 days while a disciplinary hearing into his alleged malfeasance was conducted.
Update: The DA won its high court application on Friday to have its appointment of SABC boss Hlaudi Motsoeneng declared unlawful and irrational.
The Western Cape High Court’s judge Dennis Davis handed down the judgment in a few minutes.
“We won,” said Democratic Alliance lawyer Anton Katz outside the court.
