Dlodlo extends tenure of 3 SABC acting execs
The Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo & the Presidency have been criticised for delaying the appointment of a permanent board at the national broadcaster.
Dlodlo has extended the appointments of the group chief executive, chief operations officer and chief financial officer from Thursday until the vacancies are filled on a permanent basis.
The minister and the Presidency have been criticised for delaying the appointment of a permanent board at the national broadcaster.
Dlodlo says she appointed a company to conduct a vetting process and there was a misunderstanding between her department and the Presidency on finalising the issue.
Dlodlo has refuted claims that she's meddling in the broadcaster's affairs.
When Eyewitness News spoke to the broadcaster’s acting CEO Nomsa Philiso on Tuesday, she seemed uncertain about whether her contract would be extended.
“In terms of our delegation of authority framework, its three months at a time. I am not certain, but we remain to be informed about what happens next.”
On Thursday, Dlodlo announced she has extended the contracts of the acting CEO, the COO, and the CFO until the vacancies are filled.
The minister says she hopes it will enhance stability, ensure continuity, and facilitate a seamless transition for the incoming board.
