DA questions SAA's new strategy
The Democratic Alliance says SAA’s turnaround strategy is ‘thin on detail’.
CAPE TOWN - The Democratic Alliance (DA) said on Tuesday the new turnaround strategy for South African Airways (SAA) does not instill confidence that the national carrier will be stabilised.
Minister of Public Enterprises Malusi Gigaba unveiled the plan for the troubled carrier in Parliament with a focus on increased efficiency and cost saving.
But DA Member of Parliament Natasha Michael said the strategy was thin on detail.
"It's my opinion that when an entity such as SAA comes to Parliament to present a turnaround strategy, the details should be there and we shouldn't have to be asking these questions. We have every right to know exactly what costs are involved, what routes are involved and if job losses are going to occur."
