The ANC has warned state-owned entities (SOEs) that it will not be business as usual in hiring and firing executives, and disobeying the ruling party’s instructions.
This follows a fallout over the SABC debacle in the Hlaudi Motsoeneng stand-off that has dragged many state institutions into the disputes.
ANC spokesperson Zizi Kodwa said at the weekend that the party was over for SOE boards to do as they pleased.
He warned them to toe the line or be forced out of office.
Kodwa said the ruling party would enforce its instructions on SOEs and make them account for their decisions.
However, he warned that the ANC would not allow them to make irrational decisions when appointing executives.
The ANC and other parties have accused Motsoeneng of arrogance and disrespecting the courts.
