JOHANNESBURG - Former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng was only invited as a guest speaker six years ago and was never part of any academic activities, the Wits Business School (WBS) said on Tuesday.
This followed Motsoeneng's testimony that he was a guest lecturer at universities and that WBS even included his work into its curriculum.
"Hlaudi Motsoeneng was invited to take part in a breakfast panel discussion at WBS on 6 Dec 2013. A guest speaker does not make an academic. At no stage has Mr Motsoeneng lectured at WBS, nor has any material authored by him formed part of the curriculum of any of our programmes," the institution said in a short statement.
