Durban – South African Broadcasting Corporation COO’s lawyer Zola Majavu on Saturday said he never doubted that his client would be cleared of charges against him.

Judgement was handed down against SABC’s COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng in a disciplinary hearing on Saturday night. Motsoeneng was facing three charges, which included lying about having a matric certificate.

Majavu said: “I am happy for him. I never doubted him. I am glad that this chapter is closed.”

He said while his client had been cleared, he had pending cases.

“I am just glad we are done with this one.”

DA’s federal executive chairperson James Selfe said he was appalled but not surprised.

“We believe that this was a stitch up from the beginning and makes a mockery of the Supreme Court of Appeal, the Public Protector and Judge Dennis Davies judgement.

“The DA will be consulting with its lawyers on Monday with a view to prepare a review application to set aside this bizarre decision.”
