The Special Investigating Unit (SIU) has issued former SABC chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng with summonses amounting to R21m. Updating Parliament’s communications portfolio committee, SIU head Lekhoa Mothibi said summonses were issued earlier in February. The summonses issued were to recover the R11m bonus Motsoeneng received in 2016 for “successfully” negotiating the controversial R533m deal with MultiChoice. The SIU also wanted to recover R10.7m in damages from the former SABC executive related to irregular appointments and dismissals of staff on his watch.
