Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma is using SABC Chief Operating Officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng to turn the public broadcaster into a state broadcaster, Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane said on Monday.

"Jacob Zuma has captured state institutions… So what has happened now is that he has deployed people to institutions of government, whether those people are at the NPA (National Prosecuting Authority), whether it’s at SAA (South African Airways) and now we are seeing it at the SABC," Maimane told reporters in Soshanguve, Tshwane, at the launch of his party’s manifesto in the region.

He said Motsoeneng should have resigned from his position after Public Protector Thuli Madonsela released a report against him.
