Media Monitoring Africa (MMA) said while this was only a draft contract, the issue lay with just how much ANN7 was receiving “in any case” as opposed to the national broadcaster, the SABC, which has a far larger viewership.
“The first thing to point out is that the R150 million comes from a draft contract. So we can’t say they were getting paid that amount.
“However, the issue is if they were getting R50 million, that means they were getting the same amount as the SABC,” MMA’s director William Bird said.
