SABC to rule on Motsoeneng's disciplinary hearing (and it's not looking good)

Former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng is expected to know his fate on Monday afternoon after his disciplinary hearing last week.

EWN's Gia Nicolaides says the SABC will make an announcement at 3pm at the Auckland Park headquarters.

It's understood that a report compiled by the disciplinary committee has been submitted to the SABC board.

There are reports alleging that Motsoeneng has been found guilty.

We do have some reports coming out saying that Motsoeneng has been found guilty.

Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter

Motsoeneng appeared before the disciplinary committee on Friday on charges of contravening the terms of his suspension after holding a press briefing in April.

In April, the former COO went against procedure and held a four-hour long press briefing where he defended his 90% local policy and criticised the parliamentary ad hoc committee on the SABC Board Inquiry.
