sabcBusinessLive reports that Hlaudi Motsoeneng was due to challenge his dismissal from the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration on Monday.  

The parties failed to reach agreement during conciliation in 2017.  Motsoeneng was fired after a disciplinary committee found he had violated the state broadcaster’s code of conduct by holding a media conference.  Interim board chairperson Khanyisile Kweyama explained at the time why Motsoeneng was sacked:  "[The reasons] were misconduct.  They were bringing the SABC into disrepute and also the relationship breakdown between employer and the employee based on the statements he made about the SABC board‚ the ad hoc committee in Parliament‚ as well as the judge who presided over some matters."  On 19 April 2017, Motsoeneng lashed out at the SABC interim board and especially at Krish Naidoo‚ whom he called a "sellout".
