The South African Broadcasting Corporation has neither confirmed nor denied rumours group chief executive officer (CEO) Lulama Mokhobo has handed in her resignation.
City Press reports a “well-placed source” at the state broadcaster and a recent former senior staffer as saying Mokhobo had quit.
Speculation began with a Tweet from the Broadcasting Electronic Media and Allied Workers Union (BEMAWU) yesterday, which read: “Lulama Mokhobo, SABC CEO has resigned!”
SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago told City Press: “All I know is that I don’t know. I have just arrived from Cape Town and am heading to the office now. We will issue a statement if there is one to be issued.”
Mokhobo is the last remaining permanent executive in office at the SABC, surrounded by acting executives, having held her post since 2012, but is allegedly implicated in the Public Protector’s forthcoming investigation into the SABC.
