HumanIPO reported last week the SABC had filled six executive management positions and including Sipho Masinga as group executive for technology.
After announcing the appointments, MWASA sent a statement to the South African Press Association (SAPA) saying they were putting structure ahead of strategy.
But now Kaizer Kganyago, spokesman for SABC, has said: “Mwasa alleges that the SABC has placed a structure before strategy; and this is not true. Mwasa further alleges that appointments are made with little or no clarity on the strategic functions the appointees have to drive.
“Clearly this statement is made with little or no knowledge of what is currently happening within the organisation, as Mwasa has not been engaging with the SABC [because] they are not recognised.”
Kganyago added they did not appreciate MWASA giving the impression they had been engaging with SABC or had the privilege to discuss its daily operations.
