Cape Town - A jampacked portfolio committee on communications, meeting to resolve the latest SABC board crisis, was treated to some more shocking revelations on Tuesday morning.
Committee chairperson Eric Kholwane told MPs that he had received yet another resignation letter from an SABC board member.
“Professor Pippa Green has also tendered her resignation this morning,” Kholwane said.
This means that the SABC board currently has only two members, Suzanne Vos and Claire McNeil. Vos is present in the meeting, McNeil is outside the country.
The coalition Save our SABC asked to make a presentation at the meeting on Tuesday morning but the chairperson overruled the request, saying presentations from stakeholders will be heard at another stage.
Confusion also reigns over resignations received from the board members who, according to the Broadcasting Act, have to serve a three-month notice period.
Opposition MPs also wanted clarity on the SABC delegation attending the meeting, which includes former acting chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng.
Motsoeneng, seated next to the SABC executive including the acting chief financial officer, the secretary and the CEO, caused some consternation.
The issue was also overruled by the chair who said he has “no say on where people choose to sit”.
