“Following an intensive investigation process, the Commission made findings and submitted recommendations which the SABC is implementing,” the SABC said.

“The SABC confirms that an appropriate course of action has been initiated against all the alleged perpetrators in line with applicable company policies and relevant legislation. The alleged perpetrators have been served with requisite notices to afford them an opportunity to make representations in response to the action initiated by the SABC.”

The public broadcaster said that the Commission was independent from the SABC, and presented its final report which was accepted in its entirety by the SABC board, the SABC said.
