Ex­ten­sion for SABC ex­ec­u­tives

Cape Argus - - News -

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
