In October, some of the money, R2,1 billion, was transferred to the public broadcaster after it met certain conditions for the bailout.
“Working together with the SABC we agreed documents should be submitted by 15 January 2020 in order for remaining balance of R1.1 billion to be transferred,” Communications and Digital Technologies Minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams said.
She also said when the bailout was announced, they mentioned there were conditions the SABC was supposed to meet before the total amount was released.
“This also meant we have to continuously monitor the work that is being done by SABC in terms of the spend of the money that we have availed. As I speak to you now, we have been receiving monthly updates from the SABC, so far we are happy,” Ndabeni-Abrahams added.
