Motsoeneng taking SABC to CCMA over dismissal

The South African Broadcasting Corporation's (SABC) interim board is on a mission to claw back millions of rands paid to disgraced former COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter says the board is trying to get back R11.4 million in bonuses that he received in 2016 and is considering laying criminal charged against Motsoeneng.

Nicolaides says she has spoken to Motsoeneng's lawyer who said he is unaware of the SABC board's plans.

Motsoeneng will still be going to CCMA to fight his dismissal from the public broadcaster.
