Minister of Communications, Ayanda Dlodlo, has noted a misleading report by The Times Newspaper regarding appointments at SABC.  The Times report alleges that “President Zuma missed the deadline for appointing an SABC chief operating officer because none of the candidates met expectations”.

This is a highly confused and misleading report. The facts are that Minister Dlodlo addressed a media briefing on the state of entities under her executive authority and on the SABC, she indicated that the SAQA verification process was underway and once that was completed, the information would be sent to the President to enable him to make his final decision.

Regarding vacant executive management positions at SABC, the Minister said that she wanted to ensure that the people who are appointed in the positions of Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer were of requisite skill and expertise,. She added that she needed turn around specialists at the entity and what she had been presented with so far did not meet that criteria.

It boggles the mind how the Times journalist decided to conflate these two distinct issues. In any event, the President is not involved in the appointment of executive management of the SABC, it is the board that recommends to the Minister who in turn makes the final decision on the appointments.
