SIU to recover R21.7 million from Hlaudi Motsoeneng on behalf of SABC
The Special Investigative Unit is working on recovering almost R33 million on behalf of the South African Broadcasting Commission.
The unit is planning to recover R21.7 million from the former Chief Operating Officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng.
Head of the SIU, Advocate Andy Mothibi says the investigations have revealed the irregularities that took place under his watch.
He says R11 million of the money is related to the MultiChoice contract while the other R11 million is related to irregular appointments and unlawful salary increases.
Papers are already filed with the courts to retrieve the money from Motsoeneng.
We believe we have a strong case because our investigations revealed those irregularities and that's why we approached the courts.Advocate Andy Mothibi, Head of the SIU
In terms of the recovery, firstly it will be the money that the corporation has lost and those should be from Mr Motsoeneng himself.Advocate Andy Mothibi, Head of the SIU
