- Luthuli House's employees have yet to be paid their December salaries and are set to have a disappointing Christmas
- Leadership has admitted to a dire financial situation in a letter sent out to workers earlier in the month
- ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe has confirmed the delay, revealing its not the first time
ANC staff at Luthuli House are up in arms after the ruling party failed to cough up this month's salaries.
IOL reports that the ANC had sent out a letter to employees at party headquarters explaining that payments would be delayed.
Nevertheless, people are upset over the bleak festive season ahead of them after not receiving their money, with one anonymously commenting:
“I am very angry because I was expecting that I will be paid, but I don’t know what is happening."
When probed for comment national spokesperson Pule Mabe got heated, refusing to discuss 'party finances' before admitting to knowing about the incident.
But the representative says this isn't the first time that the ruling party had a hard time paying its people:
“If there are delays, they (employees) would be notified and told they would be getting their payments on such and such a day, and it happens all the time."
Briefly.co.za gathered that employees were also facing a hike in medical aid rates in the New Year, along with minimal chances of scoring increases.
