sabcSowetanLive reports that former broadcasting boss Hlaudi Motsoeneng's lawyer wants more time to be set aside for an arbitration hearing over his dismissal from the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).  

The arbitration process was due to start at the Commission for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) on Monday, but his lawyer, Zola Majavu, said the matter had been postponed by agreement between all parties.  "I can confirm that the matter was enrolled for hearing and for arbitration today until Wednesday and it has been postponed indefinitely by agreement between the parties for collegial reasons that I'm not at liberty to go into.  But we can accept that there's intention from both parties to proceed full speed with the matter, we've exchanged all the bundles that we need and we are on a state of readiness to proceed," said Majavu.  He indicated that the CCMA would return to both parties within 14 days with available dates.  Majavu added that they would have wanted five days to be set aside for the matter as they believed that three days would not be sufficient for all the deliberations.  Motsoeneng‚ who was at the CCMA offices‚ said the postponement was beyond his control.
