SABC board chairperson Kanyisiwe Mkonza has finally publicly admitted that her weak leadership skills contributed to the public broadcaster's present crises.
Since Mkonza's appointment in 2007 the SABC has stumbled from one controversy to the next. It has also turned from a profitable business into a company that is now begging taxpayers for a R2billion bail-out.
But Mkonza, pictured, is not entirely to blame. The executive team under the leadership of its suspended chief executive Dali Mpofu and acting chief executive Gab Mampone played a major role in pushing the broadcaster to the precipice.
Other people to be blamed are parliamentarians who are now leading the inquiry. As Mkonza pointed out, her board never had a chance because of the political controversy surrounding its appointment.
We have seen ANC heavyweights doing everything in their power to undermine the board because it was appointed by former president Thabo Mbeki, who was out of favour in the party.
Political meddling and faction fighting distracted the board and management from the important task of running the SABC.
Parliament should learn from its mistake and choose people who will be able to lead the broadcaster out of the situation it finds itself in right now.
