sabcNews24 reports that the next step for axed SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng in his battle to get back his job could be the Labour Court.  

The broadcaster's former boss said he was considering going to the Labour Court to have his dismissal reviewed after he lost his bid to get back his job at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) on Thursday.  Motsoeneng was dismissed in 2017 after he was found to have brought the public broadcaster into disrepute during a media conference which he had called.  Speaking after the ruling, Motsoeneng said he still believed that he was the "best" person who had run the state broadcaster and went on to state:  "I believe that I have performed a wonderful job at the SABC and was actually on my way to ensure that the SABC was a well-transformed machine, but unfortunately could not fulfil those dreams."  The SABC welcomed the CCMA's decision, saying it vindicated the broadcaster's processes as "procedurally and substantively fair".
