Chris Maroleng not SABC COO until Cabinet seals the deal

It's reported that MTN group executive for corporate affairs Chris Maroleng soon will be named SABC chief operating officer (COO).

However, a formal announcement has not been made by the SABC.

Communications Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane says she has no knowledge of any official appointment.

In a statement, the minister explains that the appointment of SABC executives must go through a Cabinet processes.

TechCentral editor Duncan McLeod says Kubayi-Ngubane did not clarify whether she intends on presenting Maroleng's name to Cabinet when it meets this week.

Meanwhile, Maroleng has been thanking social media users for their congratulatory messages.

Should he be appointed, Maroleng will effectively be replacing the controversial Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

She didn't make clear whether she supports his appointment.

It certainly appears that he's been told that he has this job.

No doubt the SABC board has decided to appoint him. The question is now whether Cabinet will rubber stamp his appointment or whether they might have other ideas.

Duncan McLeod, TechCentral Editor

He's certainly more educated than Hlaudi Motsoeneng, who famously didn't have a matric qualification.
