Florence Masebe has taken a bold step to let her voice heard as she pleads for the protection of actors in South Africa.

The actress took to her Twitter to share two parts video clips of her submission to the parliament stating that giving economic rights to actors is not a mistake.

The star went on to say actors needs to be given such rights but instead the system focuses more on the pockets of the broadcaster and the produce.

“Giving economic rights to actors is not a mistake, it is something that should have been part of the system all these years but unfortunately the focus of our industry is never the actor it is always the pockets of the broadcaster and the producer while zero consideration is given to actors earnings and dignity.

“My next plea to this committee and parliament is that you please save us and the future generation from the blatant exploitation of actors by broadcasters and producers who for many years have taken advantage of the lack of education and information among many of us,” she said.

In another clip, she made herself as sample saying that the law is not on her side also.

I am an actor in a country that does not believe in paying royalties for audiovisual performance. The law is not on my side. The lawmakers do not care. Don’t let their condolences messages fool you.”

“I make this submission for the many actors, living and departed whose rights, moral and economic have not been protected by law since the advent of television in this country more than 40 years ago.… My first plea to this committee is that you please listen first and most whose voices of the people whose best interest this bill intends to serve.”
