SABC acting chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng was ordained as a priest at the weekend.

“Personally, I think it’s important that people can see that I have done well. If you look at my history I am a very caring person,” Motsoeneng was quoted as saying by The New Age after being awarded a Christian fellowship diploma from the University of the Free State.

“I care for people and that is what God wants. I have also done well for the SABC. I think that churches should help people when it comes to issues of culture and ubuntu.”

Motsoeneng said a real education was more important than a tertiary education.

“We need people who are educated and not certificated.”

In February, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela released a report which found Motsoeneng’s appointment irregular. Motsoeneng’s salary had also increased from R1.5 million to R2.4 million in a single year.

Madonsela found that Motsoeneng had fraudulently misrepresented his qualifications – claiming that he had passed matric – to the SABC when he applied for a job.
