Public Protector's final report released this coming Monday after a year long investigation into alleged abuse of power, maladministration at SABC.

South Africa's Public Protector Thuli Madonsela will release her office's final investigation report about alleged abuse of power, and the irregular appointment of the SABC's famously matricless Hlaudi Motsoeneng, as well as other alleged maladministration at the SABC this coming Monday, 17 February, in Pretoria.

Journalists are welcome to attend the media briefing of the release of the final report into alleged widespread maladministration at the SABC. The release of the report comes just after the SABC CEO Lulama Mokhobo decided to quit a public position at the public broadcaster, with the SABC giving no reasons, and saying its "personal and confidential".

Thuli Madonsela's final investigative report on which the Public Protector worked on for over a year, follows an investigation into allegations of maladministration, systemic governance deficiencies, abuse of power, and the irregular appointment of Hlaudi Motsoeneng by the SABC.

The media briefing on the SABC investigation takes place at Public Protector House, Hillcrest Office Park, Hillcrest at 10:00 on Monday 17 February.
