Johannesburg - The Presidency on Friday said the government respects the decisions of the courts in relation to the Supreme Court of Appeal’s decision to set aside the appointment of Hlaudi Motsoeneng as Chief Operations Officer (COO) of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).
In a statement, the Presidency said it had noted and respected the judgment of the Supreme Court of Appeal with regards to the position of the beleaguered SABC COO.
“At the meeting between government and the judiciary last year, it was reaffirmed that government would respect court rulings. Government fully abides by that undertaking,” the Presidency said.
“The courts are the highest arbiters in disputes in society and all in our country must respect the courts and ensure that the Constitution and the rule of law prevail at all times.”
