Johannesburg - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has threatened to probe the SABC board if they reappointment Hlaudi Motsoeneng as chief operations officer.
Madonsela said on Cape Talk Radio on Friday she had written to Communications Minister Faith Muthambi to say Motsoeneng should not be considered for the position of COO and said if he was appointed it would raise questions “about the ability of this board to discharge its responsibilities”.
Meanwhile Motsoeneng remained defiant about his controversial reappointment when he spoke at the funeral of kwaito star Mandoza in Soweto, saying that no one would decide his future.
Madonsela, said on Cape Talk Radio on Friday she had written to Muthambi asking her to confirm if she has received a letter requesting the reappointment of Motsoeneng.
“I then said if she received that letter she should reject it because it would be irrational, unreasonable, unlawful and generally a violation of the principles of corporate governance,” said Madonsela.
