The interim chairwoman of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), Irene Charnley, has defended her plan to stabilise the public broadcaster within the next five months.
Charnley says that the plan will not affect the SABC’s ability to meet legislated requirements.
She also hit back at allegations that the public broadcaster, which is not commissioning any new content, is in danger of falling short of its local content requirements.
Meanwhile, the SABC says it has come to an agreement with its former CEO, Dali Mpofu, who will collect an R11 million settlement in return for dropping his legal challenges against the corporation. Mpofu was first suspended by the SABC’s previous board in May last year and his contract was later terminated.
