Save Our SABC (SOS) Coalition's Duduetsang Makuse says the SABC must implement systemic mechanisms that ensure that mismanagement and irregular expenditure is rooted out.
This comes public broadcaster briefed Parliament's Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) on outstanding issues related to irregular expenditure.
The SABC allegedly overpaid an auditing firm five times more that the initial amount which was set.
Audit firm Sekela Xabiso was initially awarded a four-month contract in 2014, to probe wasteful expenditure at the SABC, at a cost R5 million.
But three years later, the forensic audit is still incomplete, and the SABC has paid the company five times the initial amount.

It sounds like there's more and more every time we think that we have uncovered just how deeply distressing the financial situation is at the SABC.— Duduetsang Makuse, Coordinator at Save Our SABC (SOS) Coalition
We need to hold people accountable in real terms.— Duduetsang Makuse, Coordinator at Save Our SABC (SOS) Coalition
