Embattled South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) executive for corporate affairs and former chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng has told staffers at a meeting that he is now in charge of the radio division of the public broadcaster.

“Radio is now mine,” Motsoeneng said to staffers at Friday’s meeting, two inside sources told News24.

Motsoeneng invited all radio staff to the meeting where he announced that leadership in the radio division had been reshuffled due to Leslie Ntloko’s departure. Ntloko was the group executive of radio, but resigned in September.

“All radio people now report to me from today,” he apparently said.

He was joined in the meeting by acting SABC chief executive officer James Aguma.
