SABC will not appeal court judgement on SABC 8 liability
Legal costs for SABC 8 have been estimated at three-million Rand
The Labour Court in Johannesburg has ruled that the SABC, its former COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng, and former News Executive Simon Tebele must each pay a portion of the SABC 8's legal costs for their wrongful dismissal. Their legal costs have been estimated at three-million Rand.
The eight were illegally dismissed from the public broadcaster after protesting against censorship among other things in 2016. Seven of the eight were subsequently re-instated. Stephen Kirker spoke to SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyakgo.
