Themba Mhambi, chairperson of Sanral
Sanral board chair Themba Mhambi took home a startling R3 million in board fees over the past financial year, more than double that of former Transnet chair Popo Molefe or Eskom chair Malegapuru Makgoba in 2022.
This makes Mhambi one of the highest-earning chairpersons in the public sector, despite chairing one of the smaller entities. Non-executive directors are paid a daily rate approved by the minister responsible for the entity. The more meetings held, the more the board fees earned.
Over 2022/23, Sanral held 24 board meetings, 19 of which were «special board meetings».
