SABC Board Chairperson Bongumusa Makhathini has reacted to the assassination attempt against its Chief Audit Executive, Thami Zikode, by saying the public broadcaster will not be intimidated in its clean-up campaign.

Gauteng police have launched a manhunt for three suspects believed to be involved in the attempted assassination of Zikode. A fourth suspect is in police custody.

The attack occurred at the gate outside Zikode’s home, but he was not harmed.

Gauteng police say a firearm was recovered at the scene and the getaway car was later found near Southgate in Johannesburg.

Makhathini says Zikode remains resolute and the public broadcaster will not be diverted from its clean-up.
