“No decision has been taken at the moment. We’re busy basically engaging and searching for the right profile the right people who will be able to turn around the organisation‚” Makhathini said.
The SABC hasn’t had a permanent CEO since Jimi Mathews left the organisation more than a year ago. Makhathini said the board has only been working for over three weeks now in office.
“We hit the ground running with the help of the handover process that we went through. So we had an induction which took us about three days.

His deputy‚ Febe Potgieter-Gqubule‚ said the sense from the report “is that we still face a serious crisis“.
