SAA appoints new head
SAA’s acting CEO Nico Bezuidenhout will now be replaced by Monwabisi Kalawe.
JOHANNESBURG - South African Airways (SAA) on Friday announced the appointment of a permanent CEO which it hopes will bring leadership stability to the troubled airline.
Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba revealed Monwabisi Kalawe will take over from acting CEO Nico Bezuidenhout.
Gigaba said Kalawe will now be the custodian of SAA's long-term turnaround strategy, which will be presented to cabinet next month.
"Mr Kalawe brings extensive experience in both the private and public sectors."
SAA has been hard hit by resignations and suspensions from its board and senior management.
