President Zuma weighs in on SABC board debate

Monday, March 30, 2015

Pretoria – The Presidency says President Jacob Zuma has noted the issues in the public domain in relation to the appointment and removal of South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) board members.

In a statement released on Monday, the high office said: “President Jacob Zuma has noted the issues in the public domain in relation to the appointment and removal of SABC board members and the debate around the legislation that should be followed in this regard.

“The President, who appoints members of the SABC board on the advice of the National Assembly, views stability and good corporate governance at the SABC as being of paramount importance.

“He is looking into the matter with a view to finding a solution.”

The board last Thursday passed a vote of no confidence against non-executive directors Mashangu Ronny Lubisi and Rachel Kalidass. - SAnews.gov.za
