SAA is bankrupt. This has been the case for almost a decade. Various CEOs have come and gone, but with government interference it was always heading for a crash.

I find it incredible that the unions now say SAA is where it is through mismanagement. When Dudu Myeni was running the bankrupt airline there was never a word or protest against what she did. They endorsed her and an airline that was running on fumes.

The unions are a joke — their lack of leadership and responsibility is a calamity of note. They need to emulate the German workers’ unions, which have representation at board level and are involved in the daily running of the businesses.
