SAA CEO Vuyani Jarana 'resigns' - reports

It’s being reported that South African Airways (SAA) chief executive officer Vuyani Jarana tendered his resignation on Thursday.

Jarana was appointed as head of the beleaguered airline in November 2017.

His resignation letter apparently cites rising debt levels among his reasons for quitting.

He also says slow decision-making is jeopardising SAA's turnaround strategy.
