Molefe decision welcomed

2010-05-25 11:09
Johannesburg - The Media Workers Association of SA (Mwasa) on Tuesday welcomed the decision by the SABC board to nullify the appointment of Phil Molefe as head of the news division.

"Mwasa is relieved at the decision by the SABC board to nullify the undemocratic process which resulted in Mr Phil Molefe being installed," Mwasa acting general secretary Ernest Dlamini said.

"We wish to applaud those men and women of integrity in the board who stood against manipulation by a few whose agenda is... anomalous with good governance in the SABC."

Phil Molefe, who until last week was the acting head of news at the SABC, was confirmed in his position by group chief executive Solly Mokoetle and board chairperson Ben Ngubane.

This was done without the approval of the rest of the board.

On Sunday, the board announced that it had convened and found that the appointment of Molefe contravened its own rules and was unlawful.

Dlamini called on Mokoetle to "come out clean and take us into confidence about this regrettable event".
