SABC wants to reappoint Motsoeneng, says board member
Board member Krish Naidoo says he voted against the proposal as he believes it would be illegal.
JOHANENSBURG - South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) board member Krish Naidoo has confirmed that members of the board have said they want to reappoint Hlaudi Motsoeneng as the corporation's acting Chief Operating Officer.
Naidoo has confirmed a report in The Times newspaper this morning that he has opposed the plan after the Supreme Court of Appeal refused to hear an appeal against an earlier ruling that Motsoe neng had been appointed through a flawed process.
He has confirmed his quoted comments in the times that the board of the SABC wants to try and reinstate Motsoneng.
But he says he has voted against the proposal because he believes it would be illegal and undermine the rule of law to essentially ignore the court's decision that Motsoeneng was not properly appointed.
Naidoo has also said that that time has come for the president and the Affrican National Congress to open their mouths and say something decisive.
He's also told the paper that it would be illegal for any director of the SABC to actually vote in favour of this resolution and that any board member who votes yes would be in contempt of court.
