UNION WANTS HLAUDI, AGUMA & PUBLIC BROADCASTER TO SHARE SABC8 LEGAL COSTS

b6fleuubz2elihgqbmw3 (1).jpgNEWSJOHANNESBURG – The Broadcast Electronic Media and Allied Workers Union (Bemawu) wants former South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng along with the acting head of news, James Aguma, and the public broadcaster to equally share the costs in the unlawful dismissal of the so called SABC8.

The journalists were sacked after speaking out against censorship, among other issues, at the SABC in 2016.

The High Court overturned that decision and ordered they be reinstated.

The union’s lawyer Nick Rob said: “The purpose of today is to determine the apportionment of liability to payment of the costs by the SABC and those two individuals, who at the time were both at the public broadcaster.”
