Former COO of the SABC Hlaudi Motsoeneng has been appointed general executive for corporate affairs, following an announcement by the CEO James Aguma.
Motsoeneng was removed as COO of the public broadcaster after the Supreme Court of Appeal found his appointment irrational and unlawful and had it set aside.
James Selfe, chaiperson of the DA's federal executive says there are a lot of decisions made by the SABC's board that in the DA's view, are illegal.
The more pertinent problem about Hlaudi's appointment is that it wasn't an employment contract, it was a deployment contract...— James Selfe, DA Federal Executive Chairperson
Selfe says proper channels and procedures were not followed when Motsoeneng was appointed. He says there was no post advertised, no shortlisting, no interviews and no qualifications required.
The DA will be taking the legal route to get the court to find Motsoeneng's appointment unlawful.
