SABC inquiry resumes, committee hopes to conclude draft report by Friday
The inquiry’s support team has worked almost round the clock to produce a 52-page draft document.
CAPE TOWN – Parliament’ s inquiry into the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) board resumes its work on Thursday where it will start finalising its draft report.
Members of Parliament (MPs) have yet to reach consensus on a number of issues, including possible action against both Communications Minister Faith Muthambi and former board chairpersons Ben Ngubane.
The inquiry’s support team has worked almost round the clock to produce a 52-page draft document that includes observations and recommendations the various parties want included.
MP's job on Thursday will be to thrash out what should remain and what should go, a process that will need the different parties to reach consensus, failing which, issues will be put to a vote.
Inquiry chairperson Vincent Smith is hoping the committee will formally adopt the draft report on Friday after which it will be sent to affected parties for their responses.
Once those are received, work on the final report can start.
