BREAKING. Lame-duck SABC CEO quitter Lulama Mokhobo who held a public office, tells parliament her reasons for leaving are confidential.


The lame-duck Lulama Mokhobo who quit as SABC CEO barely two years into her 5 year contract at the beleaguered South African public broadcaster, had the audacity on Tuesday to tell parliament's portfolio committee on communications that her reasons for quitting are personal and "confidential".

Lulama Mokhobo's million rand contract at the SABC is being paid by South Africans and every single TV viewer in the country are forced to pay an annual SABC TV licence.

As a public executive who held the highest executive management position at the South African public broadcaster, Lulama Mokhobo doesn't have the right to say her reasons are "confidential" and "personal". She is a public servant in a public office.

The SABC is also quiet on what exactly Lulama Mokhobo is getting as a pay-out, if anything for dumping the public broadcaster just over two years of her 5 year contract after she started in January 2011.
