OUT with the old, in with the new!This was the feeling at parliament’s portfolio committee on communications yesterday as chairman Humphrey Maxegwana gave the green light to political parties to present the names of candidates to establish an interim SABC board.Meeting for the first time in 2017, members agreed that political parties should promote five people to serve on the interim board.“Parties will go back and discuss their names and then those names will go to the chief whips’ forum where all chiefs will take part in looking at the names,” said Maxegwana.The names agreed to will then be brought to the committee, which will again look at the names and make recommendations. All members present at the meeting agreed.Two committees sat simultaneously as the ad hoc committee probing the SABC’s affairs continued. The chairman of the committee, Vincent Smith, said they were expecting to finalise and adopt the draft of the inquiry report by the end of the week.The two committees are working towards restoring order at the SABC. The public broadcaster has not been able to function properly due to several troubling issues. The former management was accused of unnecessary expenditure, corruption, censorship and other allegations that crippled the organisation.The Auditor-General’s report last year disclosed irregular expenditure at the SABC.
