TSEDU FOURTH TO QUIT SABC BOARD
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.
