The next step for axed SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng in his battle to get back his job could be the Labour Court.
The broadcaster’s former boss says he is considering going to the Labour Court to have his dismissal reviewed after he lost his bid to get back his job at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) on Thursday.
“I’m still going to have my consultation with my legal team and we’ll take everything from there,” he told News24.
Motsoeneng was dismissed in 2017 after he was found to have brought the public broadcaster into disrepute during a media conference he called to discuss the introduction of the infamous 90% local music quota to the broadcaster.
But he maintained that he did nothing wrong when he held the media briefing. The only reason he held it was because the ad hoc committee set up to investigate the SABC board’s fitness to hold office had “insulted” him, he said.
