Johannesburg - Former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng will continue his testimony at the Zondo commission on Wednesday morning.
Motsoeneng took the stand on Tuesday and told the commission that he never lied that he had obtained a matric certificate when he was appointed at the SABC in 1995.
"I never lied, chairperson. God knows, I never lied. Those people who have employed me, they know. It doesn't go well with me when everyone, media and others, they portray me as a liar, including [former] Public Protector [Thuli Madonsela]. It is an insult for people to say I lied about matric. It doesn't go well with me when everyone portrays me as a liar, including public protector,” he said.
Former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela had published a report into her office’s investigation into the SABC. She found that Motsoeneng should not have been employed at the SABC as he did not have a matric.
Motsoeneng insisted that even though he does not have a matric, he had the required skills to work at the broadcaster and had risen through the ranks and even trained high profile individuals who were more qualified than him.
