Johannesburg – Earlier this week it was reported that the acting CEO of SABC had received a generous bonus of close to R900 000 for doing a great “job”.
Nomsa Philiso was the appointed acting CEO of the South African Broadcasting Commission after the resignation of James Aguma earlier this year.
It hasn’t been over six months since she started the job and has already made a bonus of R877 000.
The SABC says that there is nothing new or untoward about the pay-out give to acting group CEO Nomsa Philiso.
The public broadcaster claimed that the payout was commission from when Nomsa worked as commercial enterprises head, which deals with sales and advertising.
The spokesperson of SABC Kaizer Kganyago stated that she has received commission like any other employee in her department. “They get commission for delivering on targets set,” he said. “Maybe you are supposed to get R100 this year, then they’ll say we’ll give you R30 and you bank R70.”
This information states that the acting CEO had not been paid commission since she began her job as the acting CEO of SABC. Kganyago said that it was required in the 2014/15 financial year and paid out in 2015/16.
Philiso could not comment on the topic as the spokesman had already released a statement.
