I was charged before an investigation: Head of News Phatiswa Magopeni

Phatiswa Magopeni

South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Head of News Phatiswa Magopeni has accused the public broadcaster of using the disciplinary hearing to conduct an investigation of the wrong episode that was aired at Special Assignment on SABC 3.

The SABC’s Editor in Chief has been giving evidence at an internal disciplinary hearing that was instituted against her by the public broadcaster last month.

Magopeni is facing charges of negligence and bringing the company into disrepute. These relate to a Special Assignment episode that was aired despite a court interdict.

Magopeni has been cross-examined on Tuesday afternoon over her involvement in the airing of the programme. During her evidence, Magopeni explained that no internal investigation was conducted by the SABC ahead of her being charged.

“I’m sitting here hearing things for the first time during these last three days. We’re conducting an investigation through a disciplinary hearing. I was charged before an investigation.
