The South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) has come out to put the blame for the non payment of staff on a technical glitch from a bank that was supposed to pay the staff members on Tuesday, 29 January 2019
This follows after SABC staffers woke up on Tuesday only to find out that they had not been paid.
Speaking to the Star, Spokesperson Neo Momodu said the SABC has money and staff members will be paid before the end of the day.
“What the SABC would like to place on record is that the salaries were paid to the bank. There’s a technical glitch at the bank which has resulted in the salaries not being paid.
“We are trying to resolve this with the bank and as soon as that is resolved – which will be in a matter of hours – staff will receive their salaries.
“The money was paid on the usual day that the SABC does, knowing that it should reflect on the 29th. It didn’t do so,” Momodu stated.
