The South African Broadcasting Corporation's (SABC) Chief Operating Officer (COO) Hlaudi Motsoeneng has returned to work after a disciplinary hearing found him not guilty on all three charges against him.
He had been accused of misrepresenting his qualifications, purging senior staff members and raising his own salary three times in one year.
Motsoeneng on Monday said that he knew from the beginning that the allegations had no basis and expressed relief to have his name cleared.
Listen to the full conversation from The Midday Report with Stephen Grootes:
I was over the moon because I knew from the on set that I did not lie about the matric issue or purger people.— Hlaudi Motsoeneng, SABC Chief Operating Officer
What I know is that I have done well for the organisation.— Hlaudi Motsoeneng, SABC Chief Operating Officer
On Saturday night, Motsoeneng was acquitted on charges of dishonesty, misconduct and abuse of power.
