CAPE TOWN - The DA is demanding that the SABC reveal the salary structures of its top management.
According to DA Shadow Minister of Communications, Phumzile Van Damme, the SABC yesterday, revealed that the salaries of the recently appointed executive board members and executive management have been significantly reduced.
However, the “significantly reduced” salaries are not revealed, according to Van Damme.
"This follows a request I made for the SABC’s top management to undergo a process of salary review based on the extraordinarily high salaries the SABC’s top management earned in the 2016/17 financial year. Most of the salaries were highly inflated, a legacy of Hlaudi Motsoeneng’s irregular annual salary increases."
"I also requested that top management take salary cuts, where necessary, in solidarity with SABC staff who have been asked to implement austerity measures, Van Damme added.
