SABC denies offering R100k to employees who expose information leakers
The SABC's Kaizer Kganyago says staff contracts prevent employees from speaking to the media.
CAPE TOWN - The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has dismissed claims that its chief Operating Officer, Hlaudi Motsoeneng, has offered a R100,000 incentive for exposing employees who leaked internal information.
Motsoeneng reportedly announced the reward scheme during a recent management meeting last week in a bid to clamp down on staffers who leak confidential information.
The public broadcaster's Kaizer Kganyago says staff contracts prevent employees from speaking to the media.
He adds, however, no SABC policy exists to root out moles.
"They are malicious rumours that are basically trying to retract us from doing what we are supposed to do, which is implement the policies of the organisation, which are clear that anyone who leaks information will be dealt with."
