ancIOL reports that ANC employees face a bleak festive season as they continue to wait for their salaries to be paid, despite having staged protests outside Luthuli House.

ANC Staff Representative Committee chairperson Mvusi Mdala confirmed that salaries have not been paid as yet. "Our salaries are still outstanding for four months. We delivered our memorandum of demand in June. The last salary we received was in August," he claimed. Commenting on the situation nationally, Mdala said this delay had affected workers in the Free State, Western Cape and Gauteng. He lamented that the houses of ANC employees were being repossessed, school fees were outstanding and they were struggling to pay basic bills. "Disappointing is an understatement, I don't know how to describe the conduct and behaviour of the ANC," he said. Mdala advised that they could no longer continue to hold weekly protests adding: "Through our union (Nehawu), the only available option to us is to involve the highest court of the country because the governing party is disregarding and undermining the laws of the nation."
