[WATCH LIVE] Crunch time as SABC inquiry MPs map out preliminary recommendations

The SABC's finances, suspicious transactions and the role played by the communications minister have all come under scrutiny.

CAPE TOWN - It's crunch time for Parliament's ad hoc committee of inquiry into the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC)'s board.

Members of Parliament (MPs) are expected to map out the inquiry's preliminary recommendations on Friday.

WATCH LIVE: SABC board inquiry

The SABC's finances, suspicious transactions and the role played by Communications Minister Faith Muthambi have all come under sharp scrutiny.

MPs have flagged the controversial Broadcasting Act Amendment Bill, which seeks to allow President Jacob Zuma to hire and fire board members on the recommendation of the minister, instead of Parliament.

African National Congress MP Makhosi Khoza says, “I think this bill, irrespective of where it is in the processes of Parliament, has to be a decisive recommendation by this committee because it impacts negatively on the governance of the SABC.”

Economic Freedom Fighters MP Fana Mokoena wants a much deeper investigation into the state of the SABC’s finances.

“I’m going to suggest we have a general but detailed forensic of the entire SABC, not just specific transactions.”

The committee hopes to adopt its draft report on Tuesday.
