Former South African Broadcasting Corporation chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng's shadow loomed long during the interviews of two board candidates at Parliament on Wednesday.

The portfolio committee on communications on Wednesday morning interviewed a total of three shortlisted candidates hoping to join the public broadcaster's board, namely former SABC board member Sembie Danana, Matsila Community Development Trust head Livhuwani Matsila, and Association for the Advancement of Black Accountants (Abasa) founding father William Malema Ramoshaba. The three are part of a list of 24 shortlisted candidates.
