The SOS: Support Public Broadcasting Coalition calls on the National Prosecuting Authority to follow through with the Zondo Commission’s recommendations regarding further investigations and possible prosecutions of former SABC executives.
Former Group Chief Executive Officer (GCEO) Ms Lulama Mukhobo and Group Chief Operations Officer (GCOO) Mr Hlaudi Motsoeneng were found, by the Commission, to have contravened the Public Finance Management Act (PFMA).
SOS believes it is of utmost importance that the SABC be supported to root out corruption, and for those found criminally liable, to pay.
Find the report recommendations here: Judicial Commission of Inquiry into State Capture Report: Part V – Volume 2; The SABC, Waterkloof Landing and Prasa.
We make this call at a time when the SABC is again suffering from insufficient oversight by Parliament, who has failed to timeously appoint the new SABC Board.
SOS will always lead the civil society call for an independent, just and accountable SABC.
