SABC Board says there's no crisis

JOHANNESBURG – SABC chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng has accused the media of having an agenda to destabilise the SABC.

“There is no revolt in the SABC. Where is the revolt? As management and the board, we have done well for the SABC. There are no problems within the organisation,” said Motsoeneng.

He was speaking at a board media briefing at the SABC’s head office in Auckland Park, Johannesburg.

Motsoeneng dismissed the events at the public broadcaster as merely a cough.

“There&39;s no flu at the SABC. Everything is well.”

Members of the board refused to comment on SABC employees who were suspended.

However, Motsoeng said the SABC will deal decisively with employees who don&39;t follow the policy of the organisation.

Meanwhile, Motsoeneng said he worked well with Group CEO Jimi Matthews, who resigned from the organisation on Monday.

“I have been working very well with Jimi Matthews. I am the one who appointed him but it is up to an individual. If someone decides to resign, that&39;s his business,” he said.

James Aguma has been appointed as acting CEO.
