Ex-Pirates star now heads SABC radio sales

2010-04-21 07:32

 Former Orlando Pirates and Jomo Cosmos star Eugene Zwane has been

appointed SABC radio sales general manager.

Zwane was previously the public broadcaster’s national portfolio

brand manager, a position to which he was appointed in March 2006.

The SABC has also announced the appointment of Anton Heunis as

acting commercial enterprises group executive, the position held by suspended

former acting chief executive Gab Mampone, who was temporarily put on ice in

February for alleged serious misconduct.

Heunis was head of audience services before his appointment.

He was censured earlier this year after being implicated in

auditor-general Terrence Nombembe’s report into corruption at the SABC in

September last year.

Heunis was suspended along with chief financial officer Robin

Nicholson, head of group procurement Mabela Sathekge and former content

enterprises boss Mvuzo Mbebe.

Heunis and Nicholson received final written warnings while Mbebe’s

contract expired in February this year.

Both appointments were effective from yesterday and were made by

group chief executive officer Solly Mokoetle in consultation with the SABC
