The change is in its final stage and we can expect to see a big board with Motsoeneng’s name on it any time from now.

A stadium in Bluegumbosch, QwaQwa, in the Free State, will be renamed after SABC chief operations officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

“It was decided unopposed by the community that the facility be named after Motsoeneng because the people felt he had done a lot of good things in QwaQwa,” provincial department of arts and culture secretariat head, Jeff Mphomela, told The New Age.

“The name change is in its final stage and we can expect to see a big board with Motsoeneng’s name on it any time from now."

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela released a report in February, when Motsoeneng was still acting COO.

She found that his salary had increased from R1.5 million to R2.4 million in one year.

She also found that he had purged senior staff and misrepresented his qualifications, stating that he had passed matric.

Madonsela recommended a new COO be appointed to the SABC within 90 days.

Communications Minister Faith Muthambi announced Motsoeneng’s permanent appointment earlier this month, saying he was cleared of all wrongdoing by a legal firm before being appointed.

The Democratic Alliance has launched a high court bid to have his appointment set aside and Muthambi has filed papers opposing it.
