Some interview ideas...

It would be fascinating to see interviews of these people explaining where this money went on their watch and why they deserve these salaries.
The CEO can tell us why we should pay more in license fees.

The SABC execs deserve their pay because they work so hard on making people pay TV licenses for their Nokia 3310s.
That was my first phone.
Worked better than most phones today.
I think these tools would spend millions just to see if feature phones need to be included in license fees.

As per a previous wtf article. They want to license 'da internet'.

Fkn daft twats.
 
SABC executives paid millions

The SABC published its 2019/20 annual report in Parliament on 17 November 2020, which revealed a net loss of R511 million over the last financial year.

Total revenue at the state broadcaster declined by 12% year-on-year to R5.7 billion, which was attributed partly to a decrease in advertising spend.
Oh, and now they want us to pay a licence for our phone? Tsek
 
In all fairness this is also a problem in private corporations too.

CEO pay is very much out of touch with reality especially when these companies are making losses.
 

I just saw this video I feel for the normal employees as they are the ones that are hit the hardest while others are making millions.
 
I wouldn't want to be the SABC's CFO, tough appointment that one. I listened to the SABC interview and it makes sense, but it is like postponing the inevitable. I hope her strategy pans out, but I don’t agree with the TV licence and royalty scheme as the SABC simply don't add any value whatsoever. I don't value the state broadcaster, and due to the situation they are in they are punishing the consumer which pays their TV licence. As said, postponing the inevitable, they are in survival mode and enterprise wide cuts must be made.

Also, please, COVID isn't a excuse.

Meh.
 
If the SABC cannot operate like a private company, why pretend it can ? It is so hamstrung with social obligations it cannot possibly run profitably.

It should be run like a chapter 9 institution, financed with an annual budget from government, and run independently.

And for goodness sake drop the silly licence fees.

A quick Google of her name revealed some surprising info:

Maybe it's time for her to go back to Denel.

And Googling her boss:

Maybe he should go back to making baby formula or whatever at Nestle.
