Business Day wins after court ruling sets aside interdict on SAA internal memo

The High Court in Johannesburg has set aside a court interdict which barred media houses from publishing an internal SAA memo.

702 and Cape Talk presenter, John Maytham, speaks to editor of Business Day, Songezo Zibi,

Listen to the interview below:

This is a very huge victory for accountability... The big arguement was the one of public interest, which the judge supported.

Songezo Zibi, Business Day editor

SAA has to continue with the strategy it had presented to Treasury earlier on and Cabinet, which it had approved.

Songezo Zibi, Business Day editor

In the case of the board of the SAA, they've overplayed their hand... The chairperson is efectively playing an executive chairoerson role which the PFMA does not allow.
