Extension for SABC executives
FRIDAY OCTOBER 13 2017 MINISTER of Communications Ayanda Dlodlo extended the appointments of the three acting executives at the SABC, including the acting group chief executive Nomsa Philiso until the vacancies are filled permanently.
President Jacob Zuma did not approve the SABC’s permanent board members after the interim board’s term of office expired at the end of September.
Parliament completed interviews three weeks prior to the interim board’s end of term on September 26 and submitted its list of recommended board members to Zuma to make a final decision on the appointments.
Dlodlo also extended the appointments of chief operations officer Bassie Tugwana, and chief financial officer Thabile Dlamini. The acting appointment period for all three executives was to expire at midnight on Thursday.
The Memorandum of Incorporation of the SABC empowers Dlodlo to extend these appointments after their stipulated three month tenure expires.
“I hope this will enhance the stability, ensure continuity and facilitate a seamless transition and a proper handover process for the incoming board,” Dlodlo said. – ANA
