BREAKING. SABC gives zero coverage to the minister of communications, Yunus Carrim, meeting with the SABC board today over scathing report.

The minister of communications Yunus Carrim and the department's deputy-minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams met with the SABC board today about the Public Protector's scathing report released last week - but the story of the meeting and discussion didn't make the SABC's SABC News (DStv 404) channel on Thursday, nor was it mentioned or given airtime on the SABC's flagship evening programme on SABC3.

As during the scant coverage last week by the SABC and given on the SABC's channels, of the beleaguered SABC's corporate mess, the minister of communication's visit to Auckland Park on Thursday got nary a mention.

Last week the Public Protector's office found that the SABC's matricless liar and acting chief operating officer (COO) Hlaudi Motsoeneng committed fraud, and imlpicated him in maladministration, abuse of power, irregular appointments and firings at the SABC, and questioned how his salary could balloon to R2.4 million.

The SABC board has now met twice over the Public Protector's report since last week and the matricless liar Hlaudi Motsoeneng who the Public Protector's report found was directly involved in the dismissal of all the SABC staff who testified against him in a disciplinary hearing, is still in office and has not been suspended.

Regarding the Public Protector's report the SABC board has apparently "put a process in motion" but is not communicating what that "process" is, nor what "motion" is taking place.

The minister of communication today told the SABC that a review is needed as to the reasons behind the high turn-over of SABC board members, SABC CEO's given that Lulama Mokhobo just quit without giving reasons, as well as the continued loss of other senior SABC executives.
