The DA will regard the SABC and Hlaudi Motsoeneng as being in contempt of court, should he be at work at the SABC headquarters in Auckland Park, says the party's Federal Executive Chairperson James Selfe.
The Western Cape High court has ruled that Motsoeneng, SABC's group executive of corporate affairs, must be removed from his position.
This comes after the DA filed an application to have Motsoeneng dismissed.
Selfe says it is not clear whether Motsoeneng will be either fired or placed on suspension.
On Monday, Judge Owen Rogers ruled that Motsoeneng should not occupy any position at the public broadcaster.
This is pending a disciplinary inquiry or the review of findings in former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela's report When Governance and Ethics Fail.
The report found Motsoeneng had lied about his qualifications and awarded himself irregular salary hikes.
He cannot occupy any position at the SABC, unless or until a competent disciplinary inquiry exonerates him or if the court reviews and sets aside the findings of the Public Protector.— James Selfe, DA Federal Executive Chairperson
According to Selfe, Motsoeneng is a toxic influence at the public broadcaster.
He advises that the DA will apply that the court uphold the ruling, if Motsoeneng decide to appeal.
The court is likely to appoint a presiding officer and the initiator to oversee the disciplinary hearing, Selfe explains.
