Motsoeneng faced charges of bringing the SABC into disrepute and causing irreparable damage to the broadcaster.

This comes after Motsoeneng publicly criticised the SABC for reversing his 90% local music policy in a press briefing on April 19.

Kweyama refused to give further details on Motsoeneng’s dismissal.

“I will not be going into the details of the notice period as those are people’s files but it suffices to that Mr. Motsoeneng has been dismissed from the SABC,” said Kweyama.
