Independent broadcasting researcher and member of Save Our SABC coalition, Kate Skinner, says now is the time to start the process of appointing the interim board and new permanent board for South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).
She says Professor Mbulaheni Maguvhe's resignation should not stop the inquiry from completing its work and making recommendations for the public broadcaster.
Public officials should be hold accountable, and should pay some of the money back.— Kate Skinner, independent broadcasting researcher and member of Save Our SABC coalition
Maguvhe was the last remaining non-executive board member at the SABC.
Parliament ad hoc committee looking into the fitness of SABC to hold office, accused Maguvhe of failing to provide sufficient answers on the SABC multi-million rand deal with MultiChoice and concerns raised by the Auditor-General about the public broadcaster.
He also told Members of Parliament that he will not resign until he is told to do so by the appointing authority.
The hope is that recommendations that come out of this committee are as tough as the questioning has been.— Kate Skinner, independent broadcasting researcher and member of Save Our SABC coalition
