Muthambi ducks questions on last SABC board member 

Communications Minister Faith Muthambi on Wednesday dodged and ducked all questions pointedly asking her for opinion on the current, and only, SABC board member.

Instead, she called on Parliament to fast-track the process of determining the SABC board’s fitness to hold office, and appoint an interim board.

One thing she was unwavering about was that she was “fit and proper to be a shareholder representative” of the SABC, she told the ad hoc committee investigating the current board’s fitness to hold office.

Committee chairperson Vincent Smith and ANC MP Fezeka Loliwe asked her if she thought the current chairperson and the only member of the board remaining, Mbulaheni Maguvhe, was fit for the job.
