Communications Minister Ayanda Dlodlo has announced that James Aguma is no longer SABC acting CEO, as reported by EWN.
The minister told parliament today that Aguma has stepped down from his position at the company.
Dlodlo said SABC Group Executive for Technology Tseliso Ralitabo has been appointed as acting CEO of the broadcaster.
The move follows Aguma’s recent push to charge South Africans a TV Licence fee for additional viewing devices, such as cellphones, computers, and tablets.
Aguma said the SABC was “budgeting for lower revenue from SABC TV Licences this year’, and wanted to make changes to the Broadcasting Act to “make it mandatory for people to pay a TV Licence for more devices they view content on’.
