Committee probing SABC board’s fitness confident court will rule in its favour
The public broadcaster's last remaining board member brought an application just hours before the hearings to have it halted.
CAPE TOWN - A parliamentary committee established to probe the fitness of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) board says it’s confident the Western Cape High Court will rule in its favour, allowing it to continue with its investigation.
The public broadcaster's last remaining board member, Mbulaheni Maguvhe, brought an application on Monday, just hours before the hearings were due to start.
Committee chair Vincent Smith says the ad-hoc committee discussed the matter on Tuesday.
“Proceedings that should have taken place have been put on hold until the matter is resolved by the courts on Friday afternoon."
He says, “We feel it’s a delaying tactic and it has no merit at all. We hope the courts agree with us.”
