“They want to see me out of the SABC,” he said.
He said he understood the importance of education, but a certificate did not mean that an individual could do his job properly.
“It merely opens doors for you. There are many people who have certificates but cannot do their jobs well,” he said.
“When I debate with these people here, I mesmerise them.”
He said he was not afraid of people who made a noise about him.
“I am not afraid of any noise. The more people make a noise about me, the more I go where the noise is. I don’t run away.”
SABC board chairman Prof Mbulaheni Maguvhe was also in a defiant mood yesterday after the board’s appearance before the parliamentary portfolio committee on Wednesday.
“The board is going nowhere. Let the inquiry come!” he challenged.
He said people in Parliament should not be allowed to use bullying tactics to scare members of the board.
“I am not a coward and I will not resign,” said Maguvhe.
“Some individuals are scared and are resigning.”
He said the board was being penalised because they were doing a good job in rooting out corruption.
“We are being penalised because some people are driven to be CEO and chairman of this board,” he said.
