Johannesburg - More than 150 employees at the SABC face disciplinary action for allegedly colluding with doctors to defraud the public broadcaster’s medical aid scheme, the SABC announced on Friday.

SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago said the alleged fraudulent activities were uncovered through whistle-blowers and other reporting mechanisms.

“Preliminary investigations have shown that more than 150 employees are defrauding the medical aid. In other instances some employees have allegedly defrauded the SABC through the acquisition of various services in respect of marketing,” Kganyago said.

“In light of the above [findings], the SABC will also be zooming into other divisions where potential corruption is probable,” Kganyago added.

Kganyago would not reveal further details concerning the disciplinary action.
