Out-of-contract CNMG workers must wait for gratuity payments

Employees of state-owned broadcaster CNMG whose contracts have expired will have to wait a little bit longer for their gratuity payments. 

About 51 contracts expired in the last two months and in a letter to those members of staff, CNMG's management stated that while the gratuity will be paid, it will not be in the three months originally agreed upon.

It comes as the re-branding from CNMG to TTT is expected to take place Thursday afternoon.

It is unclear how many members of staff will receive new contracts under TTT.
