Word of Mouth spokesman Nonkululeko Ndlovu, pictured, said yesterday that the actors had not been paid because the SABC had not paid them. But she vehemently denied that the actors were owed two months' salaries.
"They told us that there was a glitch in the system. We had a meeting with them and they apologised to the actors and told them that it was not our fault."
SABC spokesman Kaizer Kganyago confirmed that the corporation had not paid Word Of Mouth "due to system problems" but emphasised that the SABC was not dealing with the actors directly since they were employed by Word of Mouth.
"We are in discussions with Word of Mouth to rectify the situation. One of our commissioning editors was asked by Word of Mouth to explain the matter to the actors and that was done yesterday.
But an actor, who preferred to remain anonymous, said despite the explanations, they had decided to down tools in protest until they were paid.
