Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Mamontha Motaung is returning to work at Lesedi FM tomorrow.
Mamontha, the wife of former Lesedi FM presenter Thuso Motaung, was suspended last year with former programmes manager Mohlalefi Khoali.
This came after Thuso and his business partner Joshua Ramme were accused of defrauding the SABC of R32 million worth of airtime sales between 2004 and 2006.
The two were acquitted by the Johannesburg commercial crimes court last year.
Mamontha's lawyer, Zola Majavu, said he drove to Bloemfontein to seek answers after writing a letter to the SABC last week. "I wrote the letter requesting them to take a decision by December 12 about my client's future at the station because there had been countless postponements at the DC hearings.
"They did not respond to my letter, so I drove to Bloemfontein to resolve this myself," Majavu said.
Mamontha had continued to draw her salary every month, and had already received two performance bonuses, Majavu said.
He said the regional manager said he had not received any feedback from head office regarding Mamontha's matter.
Mamontha said she was happy to get her job back.
"The staff here is supportive and everyone is happy that I am coming back. It seemed there was a communication breakdown with head office."
