Your annual bonus should be added to your monthly salary and taxed per the normal tax tables for individuals. However, if you are earning below the tax threshold (currently R73,650 per year) you won't pay any tax.
A monthly salary of R4,880 is below the threshold and wont be taxed. You will only be taxed if your bonus, when added to your monthly salary, pushes you above an annual amount of R73,650.
