ANN7ANA reports that journalists at former Gupta-owned ANN7 news channel and The New Age newspaper were on Tuesday considering a go-slow because they had not been paid.  

Affected staffers said management repeated the same ”excuse” they received last month about a “technical glitch” when the payment of salaries were delayed.  In February, employees faced the possibility of not receiving salaries, but were later paid in “batches” between the 26th and 27th of the month.  ”Jimmy [Mzwanele] Manyi hides in his office away from staff.  It is the same painful experience as last month when we waited to get paid … meanwhile unpaid debit orders pile up, and will cost us more money in penalties … we are demoralised and just tired of these episodes,” said one employee at the Midrand head office.  The fugitive Gupta brothers sold the media house to Manyi’s Lodidox last year through vendor financing.  This suggested the Guptas loaned Manyi the money to buy their media entities.
