Trade union Bemawu has expressed shock at a bonus payment awarded to SABC Acting Group CEO Nomsa Philiso.

Philiso has been awarded an R877 000 bonus by the public broadcaster.

The bonus was also questioned in Parliament last week.

SABC spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago says that there was nothing dubious about bonus awarded to Philiso.

Bemawu spokesperson Hannes du Buisson says this makes them question the SABC‘s real financial status.

“We have been told that the SABC does not have money and that kind of amount has been paid and of course it’s not the truth that the SABC does not have money. We are investigating the matter and also a matter of other payments that have been effected by the SABC and we should know exactly what the situation is.”
