sabcEWN reports that Hlaudi Motsoeneng's lawyer, Zola Majavu, says his client is still challenging his dismissal as SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) chief operating officer.  

However, he has received no instructions on how to deal with recent reports of criminal charges due to be laid against Motsoeneng.  The SABC’s interim board is apparently planning to sue Motsoeneng for the R11.4 million he received in bonuses in 2016.  Regarding the dismissal case, Majavu said:  “It is before the CMMA.  As soon as the CCMA enrols the matter, we’ll go and deal with it at the CCMA.  I have received no instructions to withdraw it and accept he’s still pursuing the matter.”  Motsoeneng is fighting his dismissal after a disciplinary committee found him guilty of contravening the broadcaster's code of conduct by holding a press conference while he was on suspension.
