SABC boss loses court bid

Parliament’s communications portfolio committee is itching to go ahead with its inquiry into whether or not SABC Chairwoman Ellen Tshabala lied about her academic qualifications.

This is after her application to interdict the committee’s inquiry was dismissed by the High Court in Cape Town this morning.

Outside court chairperson of the communications portfolio committee Joyce Moloi-Moropa said that the committee was “vindicated”.

She said the committee would move to finalise the disciplinary inquiry before the end of the year.

On her CV Tshabalala stated that she had a BComm degree from the University of South Africa (Unisa) and a post-graduate degree in labour relations.

Unisa has since stated that, according to its records, she had neither of these qualifications.
