The South African Broadcast Corporation’s (SABC) group executive of television Nomsa Philiso has announce her decision to resign from the public broadcaster.

A quarter of a decade of service to the SABC

Philiso began her career with the SABC 24 years ago and has served in various roles including general manager of sales, group executive for commercial enterprise and television, and even acting group chief officer in her time there.

“My tenure at the SABC has had more fulfilling moments than not. I learnt a lot and enjoyed the challenges immensely. As a true broadcaster at heart, I look forward to cheering the team on as they deliver the much anticipated turnaround,” she said in a statement releasse by the SABC.

According to the broadcaster:

“Ms Philiso has played a critical role in the positions she has occupied, and over the years has provided strategic guidance and support in dealing with the ever-changing television landscape and was an invaluable asset to the SABC.”

The press release went on to reveal she will remain at the SABC until 30 June, at which point someone will be appointed in an acting capacity to give them time to find the right person to succeed her.

“The SABC thanks Ms Philiso for her commitment and service to the SABC and wish her well in her future endeavors.”

Contraversial moments

Despite the amicable nature of the press release announcing her resignation, Philiso was no stranger to contraversy while with the SABC.

In 2017 the broadcaster had to scramble to explain a payment of just less than R900 000 to Philiso, then acting group chief executive officer, when the company was posting consistent and significant losses.

The large payout earned raised eyebrows in parliament, but the SABC maintained she earned the bonus and that reports of malicious intent were dubious at best.

“By virtue of being here since 2011 she was part of this scheme for all employees. When money is allocated to you, part of it is banked then you’re given [the money] at a later stage,” SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago said at the time.
