Hlaudi Motsoeneng has reportedly been offered to act as the Chief Operations Officer at the SABC (South African Broadcast Corporation), despite the Supreme Court of Appeal decision to dismiss his attempt to clinch the position.
He was subsequently removed as SABC boss in accordance with a Cape Town High Court ruling which found his appointment invalid.
In recent news, the embattled COO has reportedly been rewarded with an R11 million bonus and offered the position of acting COO at the national broadcaster.
702's John Robbie spoke to the executive director of Media Monitoring Africa, William Bird, about the matter.

It's pretty extraordinary that a week after the Supreme Court of Appeals ruling, we still don't know on what basis he was being appointed.— William Bird, Media Monitoring Africa
If you talk about where the power lies, it's not with with the board but with Motsoeneng and the Minister of Communications.— William Bird, Media Monitoring Africa
