‘Give SAA board 100 days with limited scrutiny’

This is not a free pass! It’s to give the board sufficient time and space to turn SAA around.

Unathi Sonwabile Henama

The R4.7 billion loss suffered by SAA must be its last, says Unathi Sonwabile Henama, a lecturer at the Department of Tourism Management at Tshwane University of Technology.

Henama says SAA can use Telkom as a case study into turning a State Owned Enterprise (SOE) into a profitable entity.

He says that the appointment of a “fit and proper” SAA board has been overshadowed by the re-appointment of Dudu Myeni as SAA board chairperson.

I am of the firm view that the SAA board must be given its 100 days, with limited public and media scrutiny.
