SIU to probe TNA Business Breakfast contracts - SABC Board chair

The Special Investigative Unit (SIU) will investigate the SABC contracts on The New Age (TNA) Business Breakfast show.

The SABC announced that it would terminate the controversial deal with Gupta-owned TNA newspaper to host breakfast briefing shows on Morning Live.

SABC Board Chairperson Khanyisile Kweyama says the SABC did not generate any revenue from the contract.

Kweyama explains that the controversial event was costing the public broadcaster in terms of resources deployed and also gave their broadcasting competition a platform.

Motsoeneng notified of dismissal

Kweyama has denied claims that Hlaudi Motsoeneng was not informed about his dismissal.

We have absolutely no doubt that we communicated with Mr Motsoeneng in the way that we always have, which was his choice.

Motsoeneng says, through his lawyer Zola Majavu, that he was not informed of the termination of his services.

For as long as this disciplinary process has been going on, we have communicated with Hlaudi Motsoeneng, via his attorney Mr Majavu.

We have sent an email to his office and have record that the email was delivered with the letter as well as the findings of the chairperson.
