South African Broadcasting Corporation COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng says there's an agenda to try and destabilise the broadcaster, but insists that investors are on board and he has the support of both viewers and listeners.

Yesterday, chairperson Mbulaheni Maguvhe called an urgent staff meeting and announced that James Aguma has been appointed as acting CEO after Jimi Matthews resigned on Monday.

Three senior reporters also sent a letter to Motsoeneng, speaking out against decisions they say are eroding the integrity of the corporation.

At the same time, three other employees have been suspended for questioning editorial policies.
