CAPE TOWN – It’s the second day of a parliamentary inquiry into the fitness of the one-man South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) board.

The SABC delegation, including Group CEO James Aguma and executive Hlaudi Motsoeneng, staged a walkout on Wednesday, while the only remaining board member, chairperson Mbulaheni Maguvhe, filed for leave to appeal a high court ruling which dismissed his previous application to halt the investigation.

Parliament's ad hoc committee will sit for 11 days as it looks into the board's affairs and Maguvhe’s fitness to hold office.

Despite disruptions, Parliament’s portfolio ad hoc committee says it will continue with its proceedings as planned today.
