The SABC’s in­terim board has started le­gal ac­tion to re­cover money from ousted ex­ec­u­tives Hlaudi Mot­soe­neng and James Aguma, who stand ac­cused of mis­man­ag­ing the public broad­caster, Busi­ness Day re­ported. One op­tion un­der con­sid­er­a­tion is to with­hold their pen­sions pend­ing the con­clu­sion of any le­gal pro­cesses, in­terim chair­woman Khany­isile Kweyama said. Mot­soe­neng in­sti­tuted the con­tro­ver­sial 90% lo­cal mu­sic pol­icy, which had cost the SABC R212m ac­cord­ing to the unau­dited fig­ures. The in­terim board’s term comes to an end in Septem­ber, and the port­fo­lio com­mit­tee on com­mu­ni­ca­tions is to start the process of short-list­ing can­di­dates for the 12 va­can­cies.
