Motsoeneng owes SABC over R21 million

The Spe­cial Inves­tiga­tive Unit (SIU) has affirmed that it has issued a sum­mons against the dis­graced for­mer SABC COO, Hlau­di Mot­soe­neng, for more than R21 mil­lion he owes the SABC.The SIU con­firmed to Par­lia­ment Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Com­mit­tee on Tues­day that the R21 mil­lion incor­po­rates an R11.4 mil­lion “achieve­ment expense” Mot­soe­neng got for the sup­posed Mul­ti­Choice “chron­i­cles bar­gain” and an extra R10.5 mil­lion in dam­aged iden­ti­fied with irreg­u­lar appoint­ments and fir­ing of staff.

Demo­c­ra­t­ic Alliance (DA) Shad­ow Min­is­ter of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions  Phumzile Van Damme said her par­ty wel­comed the action against Mot­soe­neng pro­ceeds.

“It can’t be that peo­ple like Mot­soe­neng plun­der pub­lic insti­tu­tion, resign or dis­missed and there is no fur­ther action. All stolen cash must come back to the pub­lic purse. We, along these lines, wel­come the SIU’s action,” said Van Damme.

Van Damme said the tide is cur­rent­ly swing­ing to Mot­soe­neng and the self-announced “nat­ur­al schol­ar­ly”.

The DA addi­tion­al­ly takes note of that the SIU is inves­ti­gat­ing 8 of the con­tracts recog­nised as dodgy amid the SABC Ad hoc Inquiry.

This like­wise incor­po­rates the flawed R460 mil­lion con­tract with Mul­ti­Choice.

Mot­soe­neng is how­ev­er by all account, not the only indi­vid­ual involved in the SABC Ad hoc Inquiry report. Com­pro­mised peo­ple, for exam­ple, James Agu­ma and par­tic­u­lar­ly Min­is­ter Faith Mutham­bi should like­wise be per­se­cut­ed for any wrong­do­ing.

The SIU intends to hand over the Inter­im Pres­i­den­tial Report on their inves­ti­ga­tions con­cern­ing these dodgy con­tracts to the Office of the Pres­i­dent on May 31, 2018.

Van Damme said DA antic­i­pates accept­ing the final find­ing from the SIU with the end goal for it to be scru­ti­nised by gen­er­al soci­ety and bring all those involved to book.
