SABC corruption cases dating back to 2014 remain unresolved

SABC

The SABC is yet to resolve a number of corruption-related cases involving employees and management, dating back to 2014.

This information was revealed by Minister of Communications, Ayanda Dlodlo, in a written reply to questions sent by the DA.

According to Dlodlo, the SABC Forensic Unit has issued 37 forensic reports on allegations ranging from fraud and corruption, to bribery and nepotism at the public broadcaster since May 2014. However, many of these findings still await corrective action from SABC management.

Among some of these cases are the following:

“It is now clear that the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) should start with the mammoth task of addressing all the corruption in the SABC immediately. The SABC interim board Chairperson, Khanyisile Kweyama, indicated in Parliament last week that a request has been sent to the President to sign the proclamation for the SIU to investigate the SABC. The President is yet to sign and must do so immediately for the investigation to commence,” the DA’s Phumzile van Damme said.
