Civil action group Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) on Friday welcomed the Supreme Court of Appeal’s decision to dismiss, with costs, former South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s application for leave to appeal, saying he had cost the SABC money and reputational damage.

The Labour Court in 2017 found that Motsoeneng should be held liable in his personal capacity for the legal costs associated with the court case on his controversial ban on the broadcasting of protest actions by the public broadcaster.

This ban resulted in the so-called SABC 8 being unlawfully fired at the time.

Outa portfolio manager for special projects Dominique Msibi said it was this decision that Motsoeneng tried to challenge. At the time Outa maintained that Motsoeneng should pay all those costs, not the SABC.

Msibi added that this appeal has been dismissed, which means Motsoeneng will be held accountable.

Outa said its case lodged in December 2016 against Motsoeneng was still under investigation.

The civil action organisation stated that it was dealing with two law enforcement agencies in this regard and was in regular communication with them to receive feedback and status updates.

Msibi concluded that the organisation applauded the law enforcement agencies involved for their vigilance in taking this matter forward.
