This emerged on Tuesday when the portfolio committee on communications discussed the filling of vacancies at the SABC board.
“The response of people who applied for internships, jobs and so on - 90 of those who responded said they were looking for internships,” committee chairperson Hlengiwe Mkhize said.
The committee first advertised four posts in October, and again in December, after the resignation of four more members.
The committee’s content adviser, Mbombo Maleka, said Parliament had received 323 nominations for the SABC board. He explained that the initial advertisement attracted 80 nominations and the second 153 - bringing the valid nominations to 233.
