WATCH: SABC inquiry concludes, draft report adopted

CAPE TOWN - Democratic Alliance members of Parliament walked out of the ad hoc SABC committee meeting's final sitting on Friday. 

DA national spokesperson Phumzile Van Damme and Mike Waters said they would not adopt the committee's final report without recommendations.

 

 

 

 

Parliament's ad hoc committee probing the fitness of the SABC board was finalised and adopted on Friday. The committee will meet again on 14 February, when all affected parties will be able to comment on factual submissions of the report. 

 

 

 

 

The ad hoc committee will then sit on 22 February to adopt the report and send it on to Parliament.
