sabcBusinessLive reports that the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has confirmed that it has appointed former journalist Chris Maroleng as its chief operating officer (COO) with effect from 1 February.  

Maroleng was, until recently, the group executive for corporate affairs at MTN.  The public broadcaster, which is facing its worst financial crisis to date, has not had a permanent COO since the sacking of Hlaudi Motsoeneng in July 2017.  It is still to appoint a permanent CEO and chief financial officer.  Apparently, the Treasury will not advance the R3bn government guarantee the SABC has requested until the broadcaster deals with several issues, including the appointment of executives.  Adverts for the CEO and chief financial officer position have been placed and the deadline for applications has been extended to 14 February, the SABC indicated.
