ANC welcomes appointment of SABC COO

30 January 2018

The ANC Study Group on Communications welcomes the appointment of Chris Maroleng as the new Chief Operations Officer (COO) of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) effective from 01 February 2018.

This appointment comes a week after the SABC Board briefed parliament's portfolio committee on communications that the process of vetting and appointing the COO would be finalised this week.

The newly appointed COO holds a BA(Hons) degree and an MBA degree from the University of Cape Town. He proves to have an established career, which includes his former position as eNCA's Africa Editor, an executive for group corporate affairs at the MTN Group and as a researcher at the Institute for Security Studies.

The ANC welcomes this decision and hopes that Maroleng's appointment will take the public broadcaster to new heights.

Issued by the Whip of the ANC Study Group on Communications, comrade Mziwamadoda Kalako.
