The Parliamentary Committee on Communications has expressed concern about the allegation that former South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Board chairman Professor Mbulaheni Maguvhe, might have misled a Parliamentary ad hoc committee set up to investigate the fitness of members of the SABC board to hold office and has urged the ad hoc committee to investigate the claim.
Maguvhe, who was the last remaining member of the board, tendered in his resignation on Monday after earlier refusing to do so.
Parliamentary Committee on Communications chairman Humphrey Maxegwana said here Tuesday that while Maguvhe's resignation should be welcomed, his delaying tactics had wasted Parliament's time.
We welcome the resignation of the last man standing, Professor Maguvhe. As we welcome it, we feel that he wasted a lot of time for Parliament, for the ad hoc committee and especially after he misled them on a number of issues, when he was responding to the questions in Parliament," said Maxegwana.
"So all those issues are issues of delaying tactics on their (board members) part, especially him, because others resigned, he was the last person."
