Outa waiting to see who gets appointed as new SAA chairperson
Outa and the SAA Pilots’ Association launched legal proceedings against Myeni, asking the Pretoria High Court to declare her a delinquent director.
JOHANNESBURG – The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) says although it welcomes Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba’s confirmation that Dudu Myeni will not serve another term as South African Airways (SAA) Chairperson, the only way to judge whether the minister is steering in the right direction is to see who he appoints to that position.
Gigaba confirmed the news this week 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 said, “I think in this particular regard he’s steering in the right direction, however, one would have to wait and see what the ultimate outcome is of this move especially with regards to who will be appointed to replace Dudu Myeni.”
