Cape Town - The stalemate between Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and South African Airways (SAA) board chairperson Dudu Myeni is rapidly driving SAA to total collapse and simply can’t be allowed to happen to the national carrier, the DA charged on Monday.

DA shadow deputy minister of finance Alf Lees said the tabling of SAA's annual financial statements is no longer a question of time, but a matter of a "very much delinquent board".

He was reacting to Parliament's tabling on Monday of Gordhan's letter requesting a fourth extension in the last 10 months for a delay in the deadline for the tabling of these results.
