sabcThe Times reports that the SA Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC’s) interim board is on a mission to claw back millions of rands paid to disgraced former COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng.  

It plans to sue Motsoeneng for the return of a R11.4-million bonus he received in 2016.  The bonus was linked to a deal that granted MultiChoice access to the public broadcaster's archives - without the authorisation of the then board.  Motsoeneng's bonus on this deal was R33-million, to be paid out over three years.  The R11.4-million was the first portion and was paid in August last year.  The matter has also been handed over to the Special Investigating Unit with a view to the possible laying of criminal charges.  In addition, Motsoeneng could be asked to repay funds he irregularly made available to the 'SABC Thank You' concert held in Orlando.  Meantime, Motsoeneng has since gone to the CCMA in an attempt to overturn his dismissal in June.
