“Last month they paid 85% of an individual’s salary on 25th, which is on pay day. The remaining 25% was paid three days later,” he said, adding that they would meet with the company management later this week for an update.
Mboweni, meanwhile, confirmed that government will dish out R59bn to power utility Eskom.
“Although government has committed R23-billion to be allocated to Eskom over the next three years in the current fiscal framework, Eskom’s funding plan is dependent on Eskom raising additional finance from the market, which in turn requires Eskom to be a going concern,” Mboweni said.
The bill explained that the R59-billion would be appropriated out of the National Revenue Fund for the requirement of the department of public enterprises.
