sabcSABC News reports that according to the Media Workers’ Association of SA (Mwasa), the new group executive appointments made at the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) should be welcomed.  

The SABC has appointed Madoda Mxakwe as Group CEO and Yolande Van Biljon as Chief Financial Officer.  Van Biljon started work on Monday and Mxakwe will start in July.  But, Mwasa’s Tuwani Gumani said they were concerned that the corporation’s board itself remained with vacancies.  Meanwhile the Broadcasting, Electronic, Media & Allied Workers Union (Bemawu) said that, while the new executive appointments would bring stability, it had reservations about the new CEO’s ability to manage a big corporation like the public broadcaster.
