 “Every household is assumed to have a television. It does not matter whether you watch it or not,” said NEC chair Nkenke Kekana.

The ANC’s national executive committee made a draft of this plan from a meeting that was held last week which is made as part of its resolutions. 

The National Executive Committee Chair Kekana reiterated that the levy would not be a lot of money for each household but would be enough for the SABC to be kept afloat.

The Sunday Times report also stated that the levy would use a similar model to that used on indirect taxes like the electricity tariffs used by Eskom as well as the fuel levy used by the Road Accident Fund.
