President Jacob Zuma has appointed five members to the interim board of the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC).

The Presidency on Sunday said the appointment is in terms of terms of section 15A (3) of the Broadcasting Act (Act 4 of 1999), and on the recommendation of the National Assembly.

The interim board will be in position for a period of six months. The members are Khanyisile Kweyama, John Matisson, Mathatha Tsedu, Febbe Portgieter-Gqubule and Krish Naidoo.

Zuma has designated Kweyama and Tsedu as chairperson and deputy chairperson of the SABC Board, respectively.
