Johannesburg - Cosatu has lashed out at the SABC’s board for allowing the broadcaster to be used for “factional political purposes”.
The federation said on Wednesday that the board’s defiance campaign had eroded the public broadcaster's reputation.
This follows growing calls for the SABC board to be disbanded after former chief operations officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng was reappointed in his previous position as the SABC’s head of corporate affairs. This was after Motsoeneng's appointment as chief operations officer was deemed unlawful by the Supreme Court of Appeal.
The SABC appeared before Parliament’s communication committee on Wednesday where it was grilled on Motsoeneng’s role and appointments.
