Outgoing acting SABC COO Craig Van Rooyen says he’s confident that the public broadcaster will overcome its challenges.

He was speaking after his resignation as the Group Executive for Technology and acting Chief Operations Officer.

Van Rooyen had been acting as COO following the axing of Chris Maroleng earlier this year.

In a statement, the SABC says Van Rooyen has resigned for personal and family reasons.

He’ll be leaving the broadcaster on the 9th of next month.

The SABC says it will be interviewing potential candidates for the COO role this week, and will soon advertise for a new Group Executive for Technology.
