New Board Members

Johannesburg, Tuesday 23 April 2019 - The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) today welcomed members of the newly reconstituted SABC Board to the corporation. The Board, which includes the recently appointed eight Board members, now forms a quorum and will be able to fulfil its statutory and constitutional duties in stabilising the public broadcaster. The Chairperson of the Board, Bongumusa Makhathini, stated “the new Board members join the organisation at a critical period when they are most needed to take the organisation forward. We believe that they will provide the necessary guidance and leadership, ensuring that good governance continues to be upheld at the public broadcaster. I would also like to thank SABC management and all staff members who, without hesitation, continued to discharge their public service responsibility and served the nation with distinction in the absence of a quorate Board”. The Board members are currently going through a comprehensive induction process which started today and will run until Thursday 25 April 2019.

The SABC Board is comprised of the following members: 1. Mr. Bongumusa Makhathini (Chairperson); 2. Ms. Mamodupi Mohlala-Mulaudzi (Deputy Chairperson); 3. Professor Sathasivan Cooper; 4.
