Four top SABC managers suspended on suspicion of spending irregularities

Four top SABC managers, including the chief financial officer and the head of procurement, were suspended on Friday morning.

But the implication-by-proximity is clear: the auditor general investigated spending irregularities at the broadcaster (on top of other investigations). The four - CFO Robin Nicholson, procurement head Mabela Satekge, content group executive Mvuzo Mbebe and audience division head Anton Heunis - are effectively accused of incompetence, at best.
