sabcBusinessLive reports that Hlaudi Motsoeneng, former COO at the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), has been fired after being found guilty of misconduct.  

The dismissal follows the submission of final arguments at Motsoeneng’s disciplinary hearing on Friday and relates to comments he made at a media briefing at which he criticised SABC board members and a parliamentary committee that was looking into alleged irregularities at the public broadcaster.  The chairperson of the disciplinary hearing, Nazeer Cassim, informed the SABC’s interim board of his decision on Monday.  The outcome was announced after the board met with Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo.  Contacted for comment‚ Motsoeneng said he has not yet been informed about the outcome of the disciplinary hearing and he would only be in a position to comment once he had documents in front of him.
