JOHANNESBURG - Earlier this afternoon, the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) announced that Hlaudi Motsoeneng is still one of its employees and will take the position of general executive for corporate affairs.

Tweeps took to the social media platform to express their dismay at what seems like another 'escape' from the gauntlet, by the now former Chief Operations Officer.

Last week, the Supreme Court of Appeal dismissed an application for leave to appeal against an earlier ruling that nullified Motsoeneng's permanent appointment to the position of COO.

The board announced that Motsoeneng may still apply to be COO, when the post is advertised.

Motsoeneng refused to confirm claims he's been paid a massive bonus, a SABC board member, Krish Naidoo, says if he has in fact received money, then the National Treasury must intervene.

It would seem the former COO is unfazed by what anyone thinks of the controversy surrounding him and his role at the public broadcaster. He did not mince his words when communicating this.
