SABC says its acting Chief Operating Officer  (COO) and Group Executive for Technology, Craig Van Rooyen has resigned.

The public broadcaster said in a statement that Van Rooyen has quit for personal and family reasons.

Van Rooyen said “My decision to leave the SABC is one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make, due to my good working relationships at the Corporation. The Group Chief Executive Officer, Mr Madoda Mxakwe, and the Chief Financial Officer, Ms. Yolande van Biljon, have made my decision to leave a particularly hard one. As Executive Directors, they have demonstrated a serious commitment to people, improving SABC processes, driving customer relations and making the SABC financially sustainable.”

He adds that he is confident the SABC will overcome its woes.

The SABC said he’ll be leaving the broadcaster on the 9th of September 2019 and they will be interviewing potential candidates for the COO role this week.
