More shocking revelations as axed senior SABC staffers spill the beans on Hlaudi

The Western Cape High Court on Monday ruled that Hlaudi Motsoeneng should not hold any position at the SABC and must be removed from his position as group executive of corporate affairs.

Judge Owen Rogers ruled that Motsoeneng's new appointment was unlawful and irrational.

EWN parliamentary reporter, Gaye Davis, says senior SABC employees who were axed revealed some of the rot within the public broadcaster.

Speaking at the parliamentary inquiry on the SABC, employees spoke of political interference, divisions and lack of moral, says Davis.

The picture they painted was a very bleak one...

The senior executives at the SABC gave an impression that what Hlaudi said, went.

The Democratic Alliance approached the courts in a bid to have Hlaudi Motsoeneng removed from the public broadcaster.

Judge Owen Rogers said Motsoeneng is not entitled to occupy any position until either the Public Protector's report is set aside, or the disciplinary process against him is concluded.

Krish Naidoo, former board member at the SABC says he hopes that this parliamentary inquiry will address problems at the SABC in a permanent and sustainable way.

Naidoo says some of the revelations from the inquiry he heard for the first as management never raised them at board level.

We depended on management for reports. I only went to the SABC once in two months for board meetings.

Had some of these journalists brought these matters to us, we would've certainly raised at board level but none of them approached us as board members.
