President Jacob Zuma s accepted on Monday the resignation of Noluthando Gosa as a member of the board of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).
Gosa's third stint on the board lasted two months. She was interviewed for the position in September this year amid objections from opposition parties, who raised concerns about her previous resignations.
Gosa and five other board members resigned from the SABC in March this year. This time, allegations surfaced that the board had been subject to undue interference.
She first resigned from the SABC board in December 2005 citing concerns about the public broadcaster’s efforts to root out corruption.
Gosa was also allegedly involved in stifling news footage showing then-deputy president Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka being booed.
She was nominated for the position last year after Clifford Motsepe, perceived to be close to Julius Malema, resigned.
On Monday, Zuma thanked Gosa for her contribution to taking forward the work of the public broadcaster over a period of time. The presidency said Zuma had informed the National Assembly of Gosa’s resignation and had requested that the position be filled.
