Johannesburg - SABC CEO Lulama Makhobo said on Monday she submitted the medical certificate required as proof for her absence during the disciplinary hearing of news head Phil Molefe.

"The medical certificate was submitted. I was indeed very ill. The board was informed and agreed I did what I needed to do, and the board was comfortable that I had done what I needed to do," she told reporters in Johannesburg.

"Any assertions cast on that, unfortunately I don't know where they are coming from."

There had been reports that Makhobo was ordered by the chair of the disciplinary hearing to provide proof as to why she had been absent.

None of the people present at the press briefing, including chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng and deputy board chairperson Thami Ka Plaatjie, were willing to comment further about Molefe's disciplinary hearing.

    The whole SABC is ill. They should all go to the doctor. The public broadcaster has become one big joke.

    Why was she ill? She wasn't in jail.
