The Democratic Alliance believes that the 89-percent remuneration increase of Armscor chief executive Sipho Thomo needs to be explained to Parliament’s defence committee.
The DA’s David Maynier says Thomo’s increase includes a 19-percent salary hike to one-point-45-million-Rand and a one-thousand-181-percent benefits increase to over one-million-300-thousand-Rand.
Maynier says this happens while Thomo was required to undergo counselling to deal with his management style as well as a disciplinary hearing after making offensive remarks to an employee.
