JOHANNESBURG – Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba says Vuyani Jarana proved to be the most suitable candidate, as he’s highly regarded and is a turnaround specialist, hence he is capable of being a CEO at the South African Airways.

Gigaba says the state entity has had five CEOs since 2013 and Jarana’s appointment will resolve the fundamental issues at the airline and implement a new turnaround strategy.

Jarana is currently an executive at Vodacom and will take his place at SAA as soon as the service provider releases him.
