Gigaba: Jarana to regain public confidence

JOHANNESBURG – Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba says the newly appointed CEO of South African Airways (SAA) Vuyani Jarana is supposed to establish clear control measures so as to regain public trust at the embattled airline.


The airline, which recently received a bailout of over R3 billion to repay a loan to Citibank has been battling financially in recent months leading to incompetence in service delivery.


Gigaba has shown trust and support to the newly appointed CEO and his new board saying they will not only bring talent and expertise but also energy to the embattled airline.


The Finance Minister has urged the new SAA board to ensure a clear delineation of roles so as to retain confidence to multitudes of passengers in South Africa.


“One of the things that the new CEO must do is to establish very clear control measures that will improve the operation of the airline,” he said.


He also enlightened the new board to be very vigilante when dealing with matters at the national carrier.


Although it won’t be easy to regain public trust, Gigaba is confident that the new board has what it takes to bring back the glory and confidence to the operations of the airline.


Gigaba has assured the public that a turnaround plan has been put in place to ensure sustainable financial stability of the SAA.
