MATHATHA Tsedu has be­come the fourth SABC board mem­ber to hand in his res­ig­na­tion, the pres­i­dency has con­firmed.

This means that the board is no longer quo­rate. They will have a 30day grace pe­riod in which they can make de­ci­sions. Tsedu de­clined to com­ment to News24, re­fer­ring queries to the Pres­i­dency.

Spokesper­son for the pres­i­dent, Khusela Diko, told News24 that Cyril Ramaphosa has ac­cepted the res­ig­na­tions and is writ­ing to the speaker of Par­lia­ment. After this the speaker will need to en­gage with the port­fo­lio com­mit­tee to ei­ther fast track new ap­point­ments to make the board quo­rate or to es­tab­lish a new board.

In a state­ment yes­ter­day, Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Min­is­ter Stella Nd­abeni-Abra­hams said she noted the lat­est de­vel­op­ments and would have more com­ment after the speaker has acted.

Ear­lier this week board mem­bers Kr­ish Naidoo, deputy chair­per­son Khany­isile Kweyama and DA-nom­i­nee John Mat­ti­son handed in their res­ig­na­tions. — News24.
