What's next at SABC now that the board refuses to step down?

The SABC (South African Broadcasting Corporation) board has refused to resign despite a chorus of calls for them to step down.

The board is currently without a quorum to continue doing its work after two resignations from Krish Naidoo and Vusi Mavuso, leaving it with only four members.

At a press conference on Thursday, Group Executive for Corporate Affairs Hlaudi Motsoeneng said that the public broadcaster is in a better position that it's ever been under his leadership.

702's John Robbie spoke to EWN senior reporter, Stephen Grootes, regarding his take on the matter.
