Cabinet hits out at SABC board

JOHANNESBURG - Cabinet has hit out at the SABC board.

It's directed Communications Minister Faith Muthambi to urgently address the issue with the board.

Earlier this week, the public broadcaster revealed that Motsoeneng had been made head of corporate affairs.

That's after a court ruling confirming his appointment as Chief Operations Officer, was declared invalid.

At the same time, the public broadcaster reported a loss of R411-million.
