Johannesburg – The appointment of a new SAA board is a step forward, according to ANC treasurer general Zweli Mkhize.

Mkhize was addressing media and business leaders at the Sanlam offices in Sandton on Tuesday night, and shared on the economic outlook for the country and the way forward following the local election results.

“What is most positive is that Cabinet is taking responsibility for what has happened.” It shows government and Cabinet looked at various issues before taking a decision to replace the board, said Mkhize. “SAA should operate at a level that is competitive with other airlines, and is able to run without government guarantees.”
