SABC delegation walk out of Parliament

7 December 2016 1:00 PM

The SABC board inquiry was once again held up as the SABC executives staged a walkout from proceedings in Parliament while A-G was speaking.

Charlotte Kilbane (standing in for Stephen Grootes) spoke to EWN reporter, Kevin Brandt on The Midday report about the latest at Parliament as SABC delegation walked out while SA's Auditor General was speaking.

Proceedings started late this morning, the catalyst for this was a complaint by SABC legal team that the reports were not available in braille as had been requested for remaining committee member Mbulaheni Maguvhe.

Maguvhe's legal team also indicated he plans to appeal the High Court ruling of last Friday indicating that he would not be able to stop the proceedings from taking place.

Portfolio committee chairperson Vincent Smith has made it clear the proceedings will continue with or without the SABC delegation.

Listen to EWN reporter Kevin Brandt describe the events of the walkout:
