SABC board chairperson Mbulaheni Maguvhe resigns

JOHANNESBURG – The Presidency has confirmed that South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) board chairperson Mbulaheni Maguvhe has resigned.

Maguvhe was the last remaining non-executive board member after a string of resignations at the public broadcaster.

He recently lost a court bid to block the work of a parliamentary inquiry into the fitness of the SABC board.

Maguvhe has made headlines for his support of former SABC executive Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

The presidency’s Bongani Ngqulunga says, “President Jacob Zuma has received and accepted the resignation of the chairperson of the board of the SABC, Professor Mbulaheni Maguvhe. The president has thanked him for his service during his tenure at the SABC and wishes him well in his future endeavours.”
