THE SABC board is considering a highly controversial proposal that could lead to Hlaudi Motsoeneng making a comeback as the corporation's chief operating officer.

The Times has obtained a copy of a draft resolution sent to board members on Monday for their approval. The resolution is to the effect that Communications Minister Faith Muthambi would be asked to reappoint Motsoeneng as acting COO.

The proposed resolution flies in the face of a damning public protector's report and rulings against Motsoeneng by the Cape Town High Court and, this week, the Supreme Court of Appeal.

"Since the next board meeting is scheduled for 28 October 2016 the board is requested to recommend that the honourable minister approves the appointment of Mr GH Motsoeneng as the acting COO for the period 19 September 2016 to 18 December 2016 on a round-robin basis," the draft document says.
