Van Dyk, Ms V to ask the Minister of Communications
Whether the SA Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Board approved the alleged (a) R10 000 payments made to SABC employees and (b) R50 000 payments made to 185 music legends by the former Chief Operating Officer, Mr Hlaudi Motsoeneng; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (i) from which budget(s) were the specified payments made, (ii) what criteria were used to determine who the 185 music legends are and (iii) were the payments tax deductible?
This matter forms part of the enquiry therefore the SABC cannot at this stage respond to this question.
