sabcBDLive reports that the Broadcasting, Electronic, Media and Allied Workers Union (Bemawu) has vowed to challenge any decision to keep Hlaudi Motsoeneng at the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).  

Motsoeneng is effectively without a job after the Supreme Court of Appeal earlier this week dismissed his application for leave to appeal a high court ruling that set aside his permanent appointment.  Bemawu president Hannes du Buisson said on Thursday that the union would consider approaching the courts should Motsoeneng be appointed in any capacity.  "Any acting position should be occupied by an SABC employee … and should he be appointed to any new post, that post has to be advertised … we are seeking legal advice on the matter," Du Buisson said.  Bemawu claims to represent more than 1,000 workers at the public broadcaster.
