SABC editor-in-chief and head of news Phathiswa Magopeni has lodged a formal complaint against the public broadcaster’s CEO Madoda Mxakwe over several issues.
These include alleged editorial interference, abuse of power and attempts to remove her from her position.
TimesLIVE reported Magopeni was being charged with negligence and bringing the SABC into disrepute after investigative news programme Special Assignment aired an episode the SABC had been interdicted from broadcasting.
Magopeni accused Mxakwe, in her complaint to the SABC board, of using the Special Assignment issue to destroy and hound her out of the public broadcaster.
She has also laid a similar complaint against SABC board chairperson Bongumusa Makhathini.
However, SABC group executive of corporate affairs and marketing Gugu Ntuli said the broadcaster had no comment on the matter.
