sabcFin24 reports that the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) was due on Tuesday to head to the Labour Court in a bid to have some 28 irregular appointments declared unlawful and set aside.  

In a statement, the public broadcaster said the appointments were made without due process having been followed as per company policy.  "So far, 28 cases have been identified for the first phase of the process.  The ongoing investigation might reveal further irregular appointments.  All affected parties will be afforded an opportunity to oppose the application," said SABC spokesperson, Vuyo Mthembu.  ''The application follows recommendations of the reports of the Public Protector and the Parliamentary Ad Hoc Committee, as well as the SABC’s internal investigation on irregular appointments,'' Mthembu added.
