Johannesburg - The SABC has not yet set a date for the disciplinary hearing of its news head Phil Molefe, the broadcaster said on Thursday.

"Mr Molefe is still on special leave pending the finalisation of the disciplinary hearing," said SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago.

Molefe's hearing last month was postponed shortly after it started due to the illness of the SABC's Group CEO Lulama Mokhobo.

A new date has not yet been announced.

"We are not at liberty to state the reasons [for Molefe's leave] as this is a confidential matter between employer and employee," said Kganyago.

Molefe was placed on special leave on April 10. At the time Kganyago said the leave was a human resources policy matter, and had nothing to do with his alleged political allegiances.

At the time, Molefe denied he had been placed on leave because of his political affiliations.

The Sowetan reported last month that Molefe was facing charges involving the alleged undermining of Mokhobo, and the leaking of information to the media.

Unnamed sources told the newspaper Molefe was denying both charges.

When the announcement about Molefe's leave was made, the ANC Youth League claimed the SABC was targeting him because he had given its now expelled president Julius Malema "too much airtime".
