Pretoria – Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Communications has welcomed the filling of four SABC board vacancies.
“The new members of the board have a responsibility to continue, the board needs to correct the challenges and lead the public broadcaster in the right path,” committee chairperson Eric Kholwane said.
In a statement on Friday, President Jacob Zuma announced the appointment of the non-executive members to the board, namely Dr Sethe Patricia Makhesha, John Sembie Danana, Adv Cawekazi Benedicta Mahlati and Lumko Caesario Mtimde.
