E.tv's COO quits following CEO Marcel Golding's resignation. Here are the eight items you must check when a key employee resigns

by , 31 October 2014
If you're looking for something as gripping as your favourite reality show, look no further than e.tv. What's happening there is the stuff reality shows are made of.

Earlier this week, the broadcaster's CEO, Marcel Golding resigned. This after e.tv's holding company Hosken Consolidated Investments (HCI) suspended him as executive chairman for allegedly buying shares to the value of R24 million without the board's authority.

The latest twist according to Tech Central is that e.tv's COO, Bronwyn Keene-Young, has quit following Golding's shock suspension and resignation.

Keene-Young, who is married to Golding, reportedly handed in her resignation on Wednesday in a strongly worded letter that slams e.tv chairman John Copelyn. The letter exposes the extent of the breakdown in relations between Copelyn and Golding, who founded the free-to-air broadcaster together.

From a labour law perspective, this saga has cast the spotlight on resignations.
