NYDA staff get millions in bonuses

Sapa

Cape Town - National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) staff were paid performance bonuses totalling over R7.5m for 2012/13, Performance, Monitoring and Evaluation Minister Collins Chabane revealed this week.

"Staff members who were eligible for performance bonuses in accordance with the applicable human resource policies of the NYDA, specifically the performance management, as well as the remuneration and benefits policies, received performance bonuses," Chabane said in written reply to a Parliamentary question.

Top management and senior management were paid out close to R5m, while general staff were paid R2.6m.

A further R7.7m was set aside for the current financial year but would likely not be spent.

"Members of the newly appointment board of the NYDA will not qualify for the performance bonuses in the 2013/14 budget," Chabane said.

Democratic Alliance youth leader Mbali Ntuli described the bonuses as a disgrace, adding "no bonuses can be justified".

"How can the NYDA see it fit to pay its senior managers massive performance bonuses while the organisation still can’t get it together? It has not achieved anything."

The money should have been used on bursaries and job creation.

"Instead, the money was used to enrich a few ANCYL cronies," Ntuli said.
