Johannesburg - Controversial South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) group executive of corporate affairs, Hlaudi Motsoeneng, on Thursday said that education was important but firmly stated that he was not going back to school.
“Coming to the issue of should I go back to school. The answer is a big no because I’m able to do everything that I can do. I am able to beat all those people with degrees,” the former SABC chief operating officer said during a press briefing in Johannesburg.
“I understand the importance of education. I employ people with education but having a certificate doesn’t qualify you to be the best, it just opens doors for you in the organisation.”
The press briefing was held after the board had been called to answer questions around Motsoeneng’s re-appointment as SABC’s head of corporate affairs, and the company’s financial status.
