Motlanthe appoints new SABC board
Earlier in 2013, Parliament dissolved the broadcaster's board after infighting.
CAPE TOWN - Acting President Kgalema Motlanthe on Wednesday appointed a new South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) board.
It follows last week's endorsement of nominations by the National Assembly.
Earlier in 2013, Parliament dissolved the broadcaster's board after infighting prompted all but one member to resign.
Four members of the SABC's interim board have made it on to the public broadcaster's new governing body.
They are Ellen Tshabalala, Noluthando Gosa, Ronnie Lubisi and Vusumusi Mavuso.
Last week, Parliament's Portfolio Committee on Communications recommended 12 names for appointment to the board.
The list was approved by the ANC majority in Parliament, but was rejected by opposition parties.
Presidency spokesperson Mac Maharaj says the new board will serve for five years.
"They start with effect from 25 September. The president is still considering the question of the appointment of the chairperson."
This will be the SABC's fourth board since 2009.
