JOHANNESBURG – The SABC has announced the outcome of the disciplinary hearing against its former chief operations officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng on Monday

The SABC's interim board chairperson, Khanyisile Kweyama, briefed the media alone.

According to the SABC, Motsoeneng's lawyer says he's unaware whether or not his client has been found guilty of charges relating to a press conference that he held without the broadcaster's permission in April.

Motsoeneng was accused of bringing the broadcaster into disrepute by criticising the SABC for scrapping the 90-percent local music policy he had implemented.

The SABC argued that his public criticism was a dismissible offence.

Motsoeneng is facing concurrent disciplinary hearings stemming from a Public Protector report that found that he had lied about his qualifications, purged staff and increased his salary exorbitantly during his tenure at Auckland Park.
