Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo says the reason the SABC doesn’t yet have a permanent board is because of miscommunication between her department and the Presidency.
Dlodlo says her department was asked to assist with the verification process and appointed the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) to do so.
I didn’t know that we had to help the president verify things coming out of the Parliamentary committee.— Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo
Dlodlo is adamant that appointing a permanent board was delayed by candidates who haven’t provided matric certificates.
“The issues include verifying qualifications, some candidates, about two or three still have not provided their matric certificates yet.— Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo
However, after Dlodlo's interview with Karima Brown, SAQA CEO Joe Samuels called in to refute the minister's claim that they did not send the required documents.
