BREAKING: Zuma Does Another Reshuffle… SAA Chair Dudu Myeni Out!

October 19, 2017

Controversial SAA chair Dudu Myeni has been axed as the chairperson of the cash-strapped airline’s board, according to source with knowledge of the changes.

Myeni had been replaced with businessman Johannes Bhekumuzi “JB” Magwaza, the founder and executive chairperson of Nkunzi Investment Holdings.

In total there have been six changes.

Myeni had previously vowed to stay on as the chairperson of SAA’s board “until ubaba goes”.

City Press had previously reported that three senior SAA executives, and another source close to the board, said that Myeni had informed those in her close circle at the beleaguered airline that she would not step down until President Jacob Zuma finished his second term of office in 2019.

This was when banks and other financiers were pulling the plug on loans they gave to SAA, citing her continued presence on the airline’s board as one of the reasons.

Approached for comment, SAA spokesperson Tlali Tlali said he had “no information” on whether a change had taken place.

Government spokesperson Phumla Williams said that any information about Cabinet decisions will be announced at a post Cabinet briefing at 13:00 on Thursday. She said she could not speak about board changes.

Myeni was unable to comment and requested to be contacted later.

The previous board had been announced by Cabinet on September 2, 2016.
