Former SABC boss Hlaudi Motsoeneng has been ordered to pay back more than R11 million that he got from the SABC as a so-called success fee.

The high court on Friday declared that payment to Motsoeneng unlawful and invalid.

Motsoeneng will have to pay R11.5million plus 15.5% interest backdated to September 2016.

According to the judgment, the SABC Pension Fund will have to make the payment to the public broadcaster if Motsoeneng did not foot the bill within a seven days.

Judge JL Khan has also ordered Motsoeneng to pay the costs of the application together with the costs of two counsel. 

Motsoeneng was paid the amount by the then SABC board under questionable circumstances for negotiating a deal with MultiChoice for broadcast rights, including access to the SABC archives.
