SAA case transferred to Pretoria

2011-09-22 14:25

A court battle between SAA and former CEO Khaya Ngqula will be heard at the North Gauteng High Court, Acting Judge Nazeer Cassim ruled today.

SA Airways had applied to have the matter transferred from the South Gauteng High Court.

Ngqula opposed such a move, stating he would be prejudiced if the transfer was granted.

“I accept that it is not convenient to Ngqula if the transfer is granted because it inhibits his defence,” Cassim said in the South Gauteng High Court.

SAA went to court in a bid to recover R30.8 million Ngqula allegedly misspent while he was with the airline. After a five-year tenure, Ngqula left SAA in March 2009 with a golden handshake of R8.9 million, which he was made to repay.
