Outa welcomes Dudu Myeni's exit as SAA chairperson
Outa has welcomed the announcement that Dudu Myeni will not serve another term as South African Airways chairperson.
Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba confirmed the news on Thursday at a meeting with business in Sandton.
The minister said the appointment of a new CEO for the national carrier would be finalised at the next Cabinet meeting and announced by the end of this month.
Last month, Outa and the SAA Pilots’ Association launched legal proceedings against Myeni, asking the Pretoria High Court to declare her a delinquent director.
Outa’s Dominique Msibi says that Myeni needed to be given the boot a long time ago.
“Outa welcomes this because a lot of financial damage and reputational damage has been done at the SAA under Dudu Myeni’s tenure.”
