SABC boss Hlaudi Motsoeneng gives in to Pearl's requests,
SABC boss Hlaudi Motsoeneng has given Pearl Thusi her job back.

This follows reports that the TV and radio personality was fired from the SABC after taking up the MTV/eTV Lip Sync Battle Africa job.

Thusi resigned from Live Amp to take up the international job but that did not sit well with Motsoeneng who subsequently fired her from her radio jobs. He was allegedly plotting to have her removed from Isidingo.

Thusi worked on Live Amp, Isidingo and several other Metro FM posts.

According to the employee, Motsoeneng told Thusi new rules prohibited SABC talent from working for rival media houses without first obtaining permission, and that she would be in breach of her contract if she joined the e.tv show.

She has been reportedly badgering SABC officials to arrange a meeting between her and Motsoeneng so she could nuzzle him to reinstate her.

In a statement Motsoeneng said: "In order for us to compete effectively, I have instructed management to ensure consistent application of the SABC’s directive regarding On-Air talent working for direct competitors."

SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago said that the SABC decided to reinstate Thusi because "in this particular instance the directive was not applied consistently and appropriate action will be considered".
