Former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s legal team has reportedly received a letter from the public broadcaster outlining the charges he would possibly face following his controversial press conference last week Wednesday.

Motsoeneng’s lawyer, Zola Majavu, said they received the letter on Friday and would respond to the SABC before the end of business on Monday, EWN reports.

“Once that has happened, we will leave it to the SABC board to then decide what it is that they want to do. For now, we are not going to enter the public frame about it, other than to confirm that he did receive the letter.

“I don’t know whether to make a charge sheet or not, but there was a letter which records steps the SABC intends taking,” Majavu was quoted as saying.
