Johannesburg - Former SABC CEO Lulama Mokhobo has told the Zondo commission that she was effectively pushed out of her prime job at the public broadcaster because of her unwillingness to agree with former board chairperson Ellen Tshabalala.
Mokhobo was testifying at the commission on Wednesday as part of the inquiry’s investigation of state capture allegations at the public broadcaster.
She told the commission that her departure from the SABC in 2015 was not by choice even though she had effectively resigned. She was appointed in 2012.
Mokhobo said she was pushed out of the organisation and forced to leave because she often disagreed with decisions taken by Tshabalala.
The biggest disagreement between the two was over the Multi-Choice deal with the SABC. Mokhobo said she disagreed with various aspects of the draft deal and spoke out.
