The Broadcasting‚ Electronic‚ Media and Allied Workers Union (Bemawu) has vowed to challenge any decision to keep Hlaudi Motsoeneng at the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) as the board of the public broadcaster scrambles to keep him in his position.

A highly placed source at the SABC on Thursday said chairman Obert Maguvhe was leading the campaign to keep Motsoeneng at the SABC.

"Most of the board members seem intent to do everything within their power to retain Hlaudi in whatever senior position‚" the source said.

"Even if it’s not CEO‚ Maguvhe and others want him at the SABC … They are prepared to create a post for him.”

Business Day is in possession of a copy of a memo from group company secretary Theresa Geldenhuys to board members proposing that Motsoeneng be appointed acting chief operating officer until December 2016.

Maguvhe refused to comment on Thursday and hung up the phone.

SABC spokesman Kaizer Kganyago would not comment on the issues surrounding Motsoeneng until he had received instructions from the board.

Communication Minister Faith Muthambi said she has not “formally received” a letter from the board with its request about Motsoeneng.
