SABC doing well - Mokhobo
Lulama Mokhobo said the SABC was gradually emerging from an era of possible corruption.
CAPE TOWN - The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Group CEO Lulama Mokhobo on Wednesday said the public broadcaster was gradually emerging from an era of possible corruption.
Mokhobo presented the SABC's strategic plan for 2012 to 2015 in Parliament.
Makhobo was frank as she told the Communications Portfolio Committee the SABC started spiralling out of control in 2008.
However, she emphasised that was in the past.
She outlined how anti-corruption and cost saving measures have become essential to the broadcaster's business model.
Revenue enhancement was also crucial
She said the corporation has lost ground due to the problems plaguing the company.
Mokhobo decried how the media has been lashing the broadcaster based on leaked information which is often untrue.
In April the SABC defended its decision to appoint an acting Chief Operating Officer who did not have a matric qualification.
Hlaudi Motseneng has worked at the SABC since 1995.
At the same time, the SABC suspended its head of news Phil Molefe.
