The Board of South African Airways (SAA) and its suspended CEO Monwabisi Kalawe have reached a settlement and Kalawe has agreed to leave, according to Eyewitness News.
This follows claims by Kalawe that the SAA Chair Dudu Myeni changed Board resolutions in order to get a bribe from an airline manufacturer, a claim Myeni denied.
During arbitration meetings that started last week it became clear that the relationship between Kalawe and SAA had irreversibly broken down.
Kalawe will receive payment for outstanding leave and his three months’ notice period in addition to another three months’ salary for agreeing to leave with immediate effect.
