CAPE TOWN - Communications Minister Faith Muthambi says there was no need for the position of chief operations officer to be advertised before Hlaudi Motsoeneng was reappointed to the position.

Muthambi has been answering questions as part of the economics cluster in the National Council of Provinces (NCOP) this afternoon.

“The South African Broadcasting Corporation was legally bound to reinstate Motsoeneng to the position he was occupying prior to his appointment as COO.”

Muthambi also reaffirmed Motsoeneng has the right qualifications for the position of group executive of corporate affairs.
