Eusebius McKaiser Discusses Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s Appointment at the SABC

Could I Vote DA?“Here’s free advice, Mr President: an SABC that doesn’t fear showing EFF politicians dissing you, for example, is an SABC that is good for you,” Eusebius McKaiser writes in his latest column for The Star.

McKaiser, author of Could I Vote DA?, writes that the appointment of Hlaudi Motsoeneng as SABC CEO “is bad news for Zuma, for the ANC and, most importantly, for SA Inc, the solitary shareholder of the South African Broadcasting Corporation.”

Even if President Jacob Zuma, hypothetically speaking, desired only good news, Hlaudi Motsoeneng remains bad news. Motsoeneng is bad news for Zuma, for the ANC and, most importantly, for SA Inc, the solitary shareholder of the South African Broadcasting Corporation.

Given the reality of blurred party-state lines in our country at times, it is worth explaining why Motsoeneng is not the right person for the job, even in a scenario where some members of the governing party may wish to be reported on favourably.
