WHITENOISE Part 7: Tshabalala removal intensifies

WHITENOISE Part 7: Tshabalala removal intensifies

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has indicated that it plans on writing to state owned freight and logistics company, Transnet, for the urgent removal of beleaguered South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Chairwoman, Ellen Tshabalala, from its board. She was found guilty last week of lying about her academic qualifications.

“Ms Tshabalala has displayed outright dishonesty by firstly lying about her qualifications and secondly by lying to the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Communications’ Inquiry into her qualifications,” the party’s Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises, Natasha Michael wrote in a statement.

“A person with questionable integrity, who faces criminal investigations and is on record lying to Parliament, should not be employed in the public service, let alone on the board of a state owned enterprise”.

Michael also stated that Tshabalala’s track record proves that “she is divisive, deceptive and misleading,” before adding that her situation at the public broadcaster, “should not be allowed to engulf Transnet as well”.
