Spokesperson for the public broadcaster, Kaizer Kganyago said Matlala had been suspended pending an investigation.

“The SABC’s Group Executive: News and Current Affairs, Mr Jimi Matthews, will be acting GCEO during this time,” he said.

While the details around Matlala’s pending investigation were unclear, Kganyago said they would not comment any further on the matter until all processes were finalised.

Matlala’s suspension comes just four months after his appointment.

He took over in July following the abrupt resignation of Lulama Mokhobo in February 2014 after just 14 months into her five year contract.

Matlala is the SABC’s 9th CEO – including those who were appointed in an acting capacity in the position for a period of time – to be in charge of the public broadcaster since 2009. – News24
