Government has gazetted its intention to review the labour rights and conditions of employment of those working in the television and film industry.

This is to have actors enjoy the rights enshrined in the Basic Conditions of Employment Act and Labour Relations Act.

Labour Minister Thulas Nxesi announced on Thursday that the actors would also start receiving certain benefits including - annual leave, sick leave, pay for annual leave and more.

Joanne Joseph speaks to South African Guild of Actors (Saga) chairman Jack Devnarain and actor Tony Kgoroge for their reaction.

Saga has always held the view that people who work within the film, television and theatre industry are to be seen as atypical workers.

Jack Devnarain, Chairman- South African Guild of Actors

I am actually very pleased to see our government take our industry seriously.

Tony Kgoroge , Actor
