Beleaguered Mpumalanga SABC manager Quinton Lenyai has laid intimidation charges against a radio listener and a politician for calling for his resignation and accusing him of ill-treating staff.

Lenyai has been under pressure from the regional SABC staff, a political party and community members to resign since he suspended popular Ligwalagwala FM station manager Vusi “Rio” Mabunda about a year ago.

Aside from Mabunda’s suspension, senior presenters and journalists in both the radio station and television units have been complaining about Lenyai’s alleged interference in their work. Morale at the SABC’s offices is reportedly at its lowest and on-air personalities’ contracts are said to be in a shambles.
