JOHANNESBURG – The Special Investigating Unit is still trying to recover hundreds of millions of rand from various companies and former SABC executives.

SIU officials briefed Members of Parliament on the progress made in several probes involving the struggling broadcaster.

SIU head Andy Mothibi said investigators found evidence of irregularities regarding a so-called success fee and appointments made by former chief operations officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng.

“The investigation produced evidence to intimate or join civil litigation instituted by the SIU and SABC in High Court matters. The value of the matters is estimated at just over R560 million.”
