Dudu-Myeni (1)

As the South African Airways scrambles to find a R16 million loan to consolidate it’s debt, a new board has been appointed with controversial chairperson, Dudu Myeni retaining her position

Many on the social media platforms were less than impressed that Myeni would be at the helm of the troubled national carrier for a second term

The new team which includes Agribusiness Development Agency chairperson, Dr Martha Mbatha and former chief executive officer of the Industrial Development Group, Bajabulile Swazi Tshabalala will meet Minister of Finance Pravin Gordhan in the coming days who will provide direction from a shareholder perspective

Here’s the complete list of the new #SAA board

Many see the candidates list for the new board as a proverbial olive branch following tensions between Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan and President Jacob Zuma regarding the inclusion of Myeni.
