CAPE TOWN (Reuters) – South Africa’s Hosken Consolidated Investments has appointed Chief Financial Officer Kevin Govender as the acting chief executive of its Sabido unit, HCI’s CEO said on Thursday, following the high-profile exit of another executive.
Marcel Golding resigned as executive chairman of HCI and chief executive of its Sabido unit this week following a tussle with the board that he said was over editorial independence at South Africa’s only free-to-air private broadcaster, a group company.
The spat has raised questions and fueled debate about media freedom in South Africa.
