Why PIC board decided to let Matjila go

Chairperson of the PIC Mondli Gungubele says the board has decided to let CEO Dan Matjila go despite him offering to stay on for five months to do a proper hand over to the new CEO.

Gungubele says the board viewed the contents of Matjila's letter as a resignation which it then decided to execute with immediate effect.

The board felt that it was not helpful to accede to his resignation conditions, in other words, the resignation is his initiative.
