The SABC has dismissed former COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng, according to eNCA.
The SABC’s board has accepted the recommendations of a disciplinary committee which was tasked with looking into Motsoeneng’s press briefing on 19 April, where he defended his “90% local” policy.
Motsoeneng faced charges of bringing the SABC into disrepute and causing irreparable damage to his employer.
He also criticised the parliamentary ad-hoc committee charged with looking at the former board and interim board member Krish Naidoo.
This follows a report which stated that Motsoeneng had been found guilty in the internal disciplinary hearing.
