The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) Board has terminated the corporation’s Chief Operations Officer (COO), Chris Maroleng’s (also known as Maroleni) contract. The Board met on Tuesday and released a statement following the decision.

Maroleng was found guilty of breaching of his fiduciary duties as well as negligence.

“After due consideration of the findings and recommendations of a disciplinary process, the Board resolved to terminate the contract of employment of its Chief Operations Officer, Mr. Chris Maroleni, with immediate effect,” reads the brief statement in part.

A Sunday newspaper article recently reported that Maroleng’s position at the SABC¬†was under question, after he was found guilty on three charges. The disciplinary inquiry is understood to have started in 2018 and was conducted by an independent person.
