SABC chief operating officer Craig van Rooyen resigned. Van Rooyen was also involved in the executive technology department of the SABC. His reasons are stated as personal and family matters.
However, Van Rooyen is convinced that the SABC will overcome its problems and the council of the SABC has indicated that they are very sorry to lose him.
The national broadcaster fails to break away from its pathetic position, and although the ANC government has to spoil them from an empty state coffers with more money, the struggle still exists.
