SOS calls for end of repetitive special investigations at SABC
This follows a revelation in parliament on Wednesday that the SABC paid R25 million for a probe into wasteful expenditure.
JOHANNESBURG – The Save Our SABC (SOS) coalition is calling for the creation of effective mechanisms to avoid repetitive special investigations at the public broadcaster.
This follows a revelation in Parliament on Wednesday that the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) paid R25 million for a probe into wasteful expenditure that has still not been concluded - three years later.
Members of Parliament's standing committee on public accounts have called for heads to roll over the contract.
SOS’s Duduetsang Makuse says full accountability is needed for the SABC to function normally.
“We need to hold people accountable in real time; just in ways they can use the SABC’s legal resources to get out of whatever situations they find themselves in. If there’s criminality people need to be held criminally accountable.”
