There is a dark cloud hanging over the SABC and the South African public broadcaster will have to undergo a "self-cleansing" to become credible, says the new chairperson of parliament's portfolio committee on communications, Joyce Moloi-Moropa.

Parliament's portfolio committee on communications is tasked with oversight of the beleaguered South African public broadcaster which has been lurching from crisis to crisis for over half a decade amidst ongoing top executive and management problems, as well as governance and maladministration issues.

"There is a dark cloud hanging over the SABC. Everytime everyone talks about the SABC that cloud hangs on top there," Joyce Moloi-Moropa said on Friday.

"It is upon the SABC itself to clear that cloud. If the SABC doesn't take it upon itself to remove that cloud, surely it will remain a cloud that will be permanently over it".

"We do need a very credible SABC in the country. We appeal to the SABC to undergo a self-cleansing process whereby it becomes credible," Joyce Moloi-Moropa implored the SABC.
