December 13, 2018
Parliament, South Africa: The Portfolio Committee on Communications has invited institutions and members of the public to nominate persons who will fill eight vacancies of non-executive members to the Board of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).
The positions arose from the withdrawal of Ms Nomvuyiso Batyi from the recommended list of 12 and the resignation of seven other members for the reminder of the term of office of the current board as stipulated in section 13(8) of the Broadcasting Act, No 4 of 1999.
The Chairperson of the committee, Prof Hlengiwe Mkhize, said members of the board, when viewed collectively, must be persons who are suited to serve on the board by virtue of, among other things, qualifications; expertise and experience in the field of broadcasting policy and technology, media law, broadcasting regulation, business practice and finance, journalism, marketing, and are South African citizens or permanent residents in the Republic.
