The Estate actors have not been paid since November according the entertainment commentator Phili Mphela. He published these unpleasant news on the fourth of January 2022.
According to Phili the actors were promised payments on 31 December, then 4th January. But on the 4th of January, a letter was sent Clive Morris Productions showing that payments were again postponed to January 10th.
According to the letter sent to CMP shows that the reason for no salaries “due to a delayed payment from the SABC due to the change in contract.” “This is the very last thing we wanted and up to this point have been working on alternative funding solutions to not default on our obligations to you.”
