R3.5m salary for Salga head, – The Herald

AMID concerns around the growing municipal wage bill and calls from Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene to cut back on spending, it has emerged that the head of the SA Local Government Association (Salga) earns more than R3.5-million a year.

This comes hot on the heels of revelations last month that National Empowerment Fund head Philiswe Mthethwa is being paid a R5-million annual salary, which includes various bonuses.

Salga chief executive Xolile George’s pay package includes a R2.8-million guaranteed salary, with a further R700000 in “non- guaranteed” allowances and bonuses, which include R370000 in “bonuses and performance-related payments”, a R144000 car allowance, R83333 cellphone allowance and R102000 subsistence allowance.
