Molefe's fate at SABC uncertain

The SABC is yet to decide on a date for a disciplinary hearing for its news head Phil Molefe.

The South African Broadcasting Corporation at Auckland Park, Johannesburg.

JOHANNESBURG - The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) on Monday said it is not certain when the disciplinary hearing of its news boss Phil Molefe will continue.

In July, the hearing was postponed after SABC CEO Lulama Mokhobo was too ill to testify.

Board member Cedric Gina said there might be a wait for the hearing to resume because lawyers are busy people.

"It's not like we can postpone today and we are back the following day. They [lawyers] have to find a day when they are available."

Molefe is charged with refusing to give a daily news diary to Makhobo.

There have also been reports that Molefe refused to work with Makhobo because he was disappointed with her appointment as CEO.

Mokhobo has now been appointed as temporary news boss.

She was announced as the new broadcaster's CEO following Solly Mokoetle's firing.
