Johannesburg - SABC acting chief operating officer Hlaudi Motsoeneng was ordained as a priest at the weekend, The New Age reported on Monday.

"Personally, I think it's important that people can see that I have done well. If you look at my history I am a very caring person," Motsoeneng was quoted as saying after being awarded a Christian fellowship diploma at the University of the Free State.

"I care for people and that is what God wants. I have also done well for the SABC. I think that churches should help people when it comes to issues of culture and ubuntu."

Motsoeneng said a real education was more important than a tertiary education.

"We need people who are educated and not certificated."

In February, Public Protector Thuli Madonsela released a report which found Motsoeneng's appointment irregular. Motsoeneng's salary had also increased from R1.5 million to R2.4m in one year.

Madonsela found that Motsoeneng had fraudulently misrepresented his qualifications that he passed matric to the SABC when he applied for a job.
