BREAKING. Phil Molefe suddenly appointed as the new acting group CEO of the SABC; immediately replacing Robin Nicholson.

The SABC board - amidst big buzz that SABC board member Peter Harris has apparently resigned - has suddenly appointed Phil Molefe as the new acting group CEO of the SABC, immediately replacing Robin Nicholson as the acting group CEO and chief financial officer.

Phil Molefe whose own appointment at the SABC was mired in controversy is the public broadcaster's head of news and current affairs.
