Use less milk, SABC staff told

According to TVSA, the broadcaster has been circulating e-mails asking that employees make an effort to save where they can and use less milk, but employees say that "SABC management has Nescafe Gold and biscuits".

The e-mail also says employees will in future be charged for phone calls and internet usage if these exceed a certain monthly limit.

In a presentation to Parliament's communications portfolio committee, SABC executives indicated that one of the cost-cutting measures being implemented to save the SABC from financial ruin, is the lowering of telephone costs.
