Employees go unpaid as ANC wells run dry
Disgruntled ANC employees have threatened to reveal the parties shenanigan’s, if their salaries continued being unpaid. This follows an announcement last week from the ruling party stating that it would yet again fail to pay employees their monthly salaries.
The employees promised to release footage and voice recordings of meetings held with opposition parties. In a statement, ANC staff members revealed that the party was in disrepute, it had fallen on hard times, it had become biased and had infected the government and judiciary. In the statement they added that since the appointment of the current NEC, staff issues had been neglected, they threatened to expose the shady dealings dating back to the NSAREC conference.
‘We are giving the NEC 21 days to resolve this issue, payback us and sort out the UIF funds. After 22 days we will release information that we have gathered that shows branches were manipulated and voting during and towards the NASREC conference. We will also expose every leader that was involved. This will include voice recordings of serious plots against other leaders and plans to take them out. Amongst these plots are those planned by serious leaders in the NEC top six to destroy former president Zuma as well as the Secretary General of the ANC.’
The workers threatened to expose numerous cases of corruption, that involved the parties Ministers, Chairs of boards among others.
According to staff an internal communique sent out to staff on Wednesday, by the party’s general manager, Febe Potgieter, who copied party the treasurer-general, Paul Mashatile, in it Potgieter explained that Luthuli House was not in a position to pay them salaries.
“This is to indicate that we are not yet in a position to pay outstanding salaries for July 2021. Unfortunately, August 2021 salaries, due on the 25th of this month, will be delayed. I do regret the hardship and the uncertainty that this cause (to) staff and their families, and this is deeply regrettable.
The ANC staff promised to go on strike should their list of grievances submitted to ANC management on 15 July 2021, go unattended, among which the issue of unpaid salaries is priority.
Addressing the media, ANC spokesperson, Pule Mabe confirmed concerns raised and the workers threats to take strike action.
“As a result of this wildcat strike, ANC offices throughout the country will be closed. The ANC management will continue to engage with staff representatives on their grievances, with a view to find a solution, so that we can resume normal operations,” he said.
